“From Heart to Heart” is a Ukrainian Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) dedicated to supporting and advocating for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), people who use injection drugs (PWIDs), commercial sex workers (CSWs), men who have sex with men (MSM), homeless children, prisoners, and victims of human trafficking. We actively advocate in the educational, humanitarian and healthcare sectors in the Cherkasy region.

Our organization was founded in 2002 as an initiative group and was legally registered as a charity organization in 2004. We have established a social enterprise producing upholstered furniture and homemade toys with the collaboration of clients from our Center for the Reintegration for the Homeless and those Released from Prison. We continuously provide rapid testing for HIV, syphilis and tuberculosis as well as hold a weekly women’s support group. We also cooperate actively with international organizations and Ukrainian state institutions to improve the quality of life for multiple vulnerable groups in the region.
