Skudsky Vladimir Aleksandrovich, 28.02.1944, is a graphic designer. His hands have created the scenery for the majority of the holidays and Hesed’s concerts, he decorated Club’s rooms, offices and halls. Vladimir Aleksandrovich is the volunteer with the experience, more than seven years he helps to create the festive mood for our wards. According to his words, the creative person has to be able not only receive something from life, from people, but also he must be able to give something. Otherwise his talent, this God’s gift, will quickly run low.

I have got to the volunteer center through “Hesed Khan” Charity foundation (the participant of the programs of Youth Club “Sababa”).
I am engaged in the volunteering because it is interesting for me. At the present time, in Ukraine, there is a difficult situation and the volunteering (in its correct understanding) is very actual for our country.

The Volunteer Anton Fateev, a student of AJT, is an ideological inspirer and the curator of the project  “Volunteer on Duty”.

The project exists more than a half of the year already . Anton has come to the family center in August 2015, and he has got to the Children’s Summer

Camp. Being ready to help and a sympathetic person, Anton has got into the work at once, he became the irreplaceable assistant. And further, thanks to the project, he could realize all his qualities and skills. Anton possesses the organizing abilities, he is sociable, and he can easily inspire the children for the occupation. With pleasure he shares his knowledge and skills to the others. People say, that this guy is with the “golden hands”. Thanks to Anton in the Family center, there were repaired all the chairs, bookcases and other furniture. He can easily sort the bathroom equipment for control, to paint the walls, and to update an interior. He visits the wards of the family center at their homes and helps them if they need the help. But it isn’t an end of his interests. Anton is fond of sport. He is the captain of a soccer team, plays tennis, volleyball, basketball. He is going  to master the computer at such level that it will be possible easily to clean the system block, and  to rectify any faults. Anton is the initiative, noble, sympathetic person.

My name is Roman Andreyev. I am 17 years old; I am a graduate of the Sumy gymnasium. I have faced the choice: to remain to study in Sumy or to go to other city. Study in other city is an opportunity, but here I have found a place where I feel good, and where I can help somebody. I am a participant of Youth club and the volunteer of the Sumy Volunteer Community Network.

Why I am a volunteer? I like helping people. I like to give somebody a piece of light and heat. I have found my own way to form my personality, and found my place in volunteering. Eventually, I like feeling that I belong to something bigger and do good deeds.

I am involved in project “We are close to you (Skype at Home)”. Also I was an active participant in project “From hand to hand (collection of humanitarian help)”. I take part in the International and All-Ukrainian campaigns, social initiatives. Now the new project “Grandmother’s Recipes” has been started and I plan to participate in it.

I have never been indifferent to what is happening with what surrounds me. Nature, animals, people. I often take the pain of others as my own, trying to help in solving other people’s problems, if it is within my power. Most likely, this was the basis of my volunteer life. I participate in such projects as “Dreams do not grow old,” “Help without limits”, “Week of good deeds” with a great pleasure. To be a volunteer is a great opportunity to help others, to do good things. Being engaged in something good, helpful, kind, you fill your life with meaning, and this is important! Everyone should do something generous and kind in his life!
