The Polish-Ukrainian Rotary project deals with rehabilitation in Poland of a group of 25 Ukrainian children who are 10 to 12 years old, plus three accompanying adults. The children belong to families who lost their parents in the war unleashed in the East of Ukraine. This project has been successfully going on for the last three Rotary years successfully, and its main financial burden was carried by Polish Rotary clubs.
