A world without barriers: a new horizon for war-affected people in Ukraine

In today's world, where every day can bring unpredictable challenges, human health and well-being are especially valued. In Ukraine, a country that is experiencing severe hardships as a result of military operations, there is a ray of hope for those whose lives have been severely tested.

The project "Live without Limits", implemented by the NGO Labor and Health Social Initiatives (LHSI) with the support of the United Nations Development Programme and financial support from the Government of Japan, opens up new opportunities for people affected by the war, with a particular focus on visually impaired people.

The goal of the project is ambitious and noble: to create a safe and inclusive environment in de-occupied communities, to ensure the development of medical and social rehabilitation services that meet the needs of people whose lives have been turned upside down by the war. The project involves not just helping to restore health, but also restoring faith in oneself and one's strength, and the ability to live a full life without barriers.

An important component of the project is the development of a comprehensive rehabilitation model for people with visual impairments. At the Podillya Centre for Comprehensive Rehabilitation of People with Disabilities in Vinnytsia Oblast, programmes are being developed to help people adapt to new living conditions, teach them independence and help them to recover their abilities to the fullest extent possible.

The project also includes the development and dissemination of a number of documents that will be useful not only to programme participants, but also to a wide range of professionals and organisations involved in social protection and rehabilitation across Ukraine. This includes methodological guidelines, service mapping and an assessment of barriers faced by explosive ordnance survivors.

The Live Without Limits initiative opens the door to a new life for many people, demonstrating the power of cooperation between international organisations, government agencies and civil society to address acute social problems. This project is a vivid example of how, despite all the difficulties, it is possible to find a way to improve the lives of those who need it most.
