Italy: Supporting Ukraine Community


By WFWP Italy

On December 5th 2016, Elisabetta NIstri President of WFWP Italy together with some ladies representing the youth WFWP and other friends participated in the demonstration DISPLACED, a photographic show promoted by the British Ambassador of Kiev and the NGO Stabilization Support Service.

Rome hosted the show from December 5th to 14th, for the second part of the European tour that had the objective of getting the attention about the question of the IDP’s in Ukraine.

The main parts of the show were the Ukrainian citizens and their families that, because of the conflict in Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea, had to start their life from nothing in a new country. They shared their personal stories, revealing the difficult experiences of a refugee.

“When you leave home with only one suitcase to go away for a couple of weeks, without being aboe to go back for years it’s something that makes you re-evaluate life’s values. You understand that you can live with so few things” this is how Nina Vidomenko started her story.

Soon, the show with be presented in Berlin, Brussels, L’Aia and Paris.

Tanya Kuzik, Director of the Ikrainian school in Italy and ambassador of Peace, thanked the WFWP together with the other associations for their support for the Ukrainians in Italy.

Elisabetta Nistri took contact information from the organisers of the event, presenting the ideas to reconciliate and resolve the conflicts on women, that the WFWP is working on in many parts of the world including Ukraine where the WFWP is present as an association recognised by the government.
