The #B50heroes media project broadcasts stories of people who have decided to systematically engage in volunteering for the recovery.

The project focuses on B50 volunteers who have taken up shovels, wheelbarrows, grinders, paintbrushes, and rollers to restore housing and life in the liberated communities. These are people of different ages, with different life experiences and worldviews, but with an extraordinary reflection on the events and the future of Ukraine.

In every conversation about volunteering and life outside of it, you will definitely find something to admire, something to be surprised by, and something to think about. Their volunteer experience will certainly break your prejudices about helping!

The project is a part of the Country of Volunteers Program by B50, which promotes recovery volunteering.
