Discover highlights and examples from the foundation's activities in 2022.
The overarching theme of 2022, also for us as the Foundation EVZ, was the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. A few days after the start of the war, our relief and support measures began:
Nadezhda Slessarewa (center) came to Germany in April with her husband Alexander and daughter Elena (right) as well as her grandson. The EVZ supported Aid network for Survivors of NS persecution helps the former Nazi forced laborer, who received the Federal Cross of Merit in 2020.
Promoters were able to convert approved funds for projects already underway in Ukraine into targeted aid. In the picture: 77-year-old Romni Magdalena Kosoruw from Ushhorod receives an Easter cake.
A three-month fellowship enabled 13 vulnerable individuals from our partner organizations in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus to spend three months abroad in Europe. Read the Interviews with some of the EVZ Fellows here.
Since April 2022, the Vidnova Fellowship-Program has supported a total of 24 Ukrainian fellows to further engage with their country through their work abroad. For one year, they continued their work in European NGOs.
