Svitlana Vnuchko, the Ukrainian Trade Union of Workers in Tourism, Spa areas and Hotel Industry (WG5 UNP member-organization):
The Ukrainian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum is a network of more than 140 non-governmental organizations in Ukraine that defends Ukrainian interests within the framework of the Eastern Partnership. Its members share European values, and it is for them that we fight — for freedom, for the rights of our people, making incredible efforts for this at the cost of human lives, colossal losses in all spheres of life: mental health, material, technical, institutional, etc. UNP is not only about organizations — it is a much larger community of Ukrainians: employees and members of their families. Moreover, the platform includes organizations with few employees, a representative office in one of the regions, and organizations with representative offices in many regions of Ukraine and thousands of members — such as trade unions and employers’ organizations. Therefore, when we talk about the UNP, we are talking about thousands of citizens of Ukraine who found themselves in difficult conditions due to Russia’s military aggression.
The war created a new reality in which Ukraine lives today. Ensuring the stability, security, and well-being of Ukrainian organizations, their families, and employees is an important element of the functioning of civil society in Ukraine. Help in adaptation to new realities, psychological support, and satisfaction of the primary needs of UNP members are on the Platform’s agenda.
We invite you to familiarize yourself with its results.
The project is implemented through the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) re-granting scheme and produced with the financial support of the European Union.
