The photo exhibition “Stronger than bricks”


is a traveling media project about the unbreakable volunteers of the B50 community, which was one of the first to begin to restore de-occupied communities from the consequences of russian aggression in Ukraine

The pictures show volunteers who are helping the affected residents of the Kyiv region. They take the first step towards reconstruction – they clean up houses destroyed by shells, eliminate the consequences of armed aggression, and preserve damaged homes.

The purpose of the exhibition is to inspire viewers with the invincibility of active residents of Kyiv and residents of the metropolitan agglomeration and to motivate them to join “restoration volunteering”.

The project “Stronger than bricks” is launched in Kyiv, on the popular glass pedestrian and bicycle bridge. This place is a symbol of Ukrainian stability, because the bridge did not submit even to an enemy missile. Later, “Stronger” went on a tour of Ukraine.
The photo exhibition is organized by the B50 volunteer community with the support of city administrations.
