War Through the Eyes of Children project
Implementation years: 2018-2019
As part of its video project, War Through the Eyes of Children, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation presented 18 videos featuring children who live on both sides of the armed conflict in the east of Ukraine. Boys and girls who went through pain and fear spoke about what they had to endure. These are short stories about the life they used to live and which they will never live again, about the loss of home, close ones and friends.
The heroes of these videos are participants of Rinat Akhmetov to Children. Peaceful Summer project. Behind the children’s stories of fear, horror and deliverance is the tragedy of the entire Donbas, and at the same time, the reminder to all people about how important is to preserve peace.
The interviews were recorded while the kids were undergoing psychological rehabilitation under this project, with the consent of their parents and under supervision by psychologists.
