UNBROKEN National Rehabilitation Centre in Lviv was created in 2022 to provide physical and mental rehabilitation of the war-affected Ukrainians. This is a unique place where adults and children receive professional and qualified medical care and assistance.

The goal of this project is to invest in modern and high-quality equipment to provide the best services for Ukrainian children.

With the beginning of the full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war the city of Lviv has turned into a big humanitarian and medical hub in which people fleeing the war are finding refuge. Lviv has hosted over 5 million Ukrainians, including lots of injured people who require special treatment and rehabilitation services. All of these services are provided within the First Territorial Medical Union in Lviv, the largest medical institution in Ukraine, that includes 3 hospitals (2 for adults and 1 for children) and 4,500 specialists. Within that frame the UNBROKEN National Rehabilitation Centre is a unique place where adults and children receive professional and qualified medical care and assistance. Since the beginning of the war, the specialists in the centre have treated 15,000 wounded from all over Ukraine, including 2,000 children.

The rehabilitation and recovery of children from war traumas, including amputations, shrapnel wounds, mine-blast injuries, burns, loss of movement of upper and lower limbs, and recovery of children with neurotrauma is much longer and more difficult than the adult one. After the renovation of the children's rehabilitation department UNBROKEN KIDS:

  • 20 beds will be created on the basis of children's rehabilitation.
  • services and opportunities for rehabilitation will be increased due to the arrangement of a special ergotherapy kitchen, swimming pool and spacious physical therapy rooms.
  • it will be able to conduct both group and individual sessions with the youngest patients.
  • all types of rehabilitation will be provided in one place (psychological, social (a speech therapist and a psychologist work together with rehabilitation specialists).
  • the number of patients receiving assistance will increase from 500 to 1,200 people, compared to 2022.
