A person, a person’s life and health, honor and dignity, inviolability and security are recognized as the highest values in Ukraine. Our Constitution states so.
This has always been the case, and no one will take away these values - this is claimed every day by our soldiers on the battlefield, by doctors delivering babies in basements, by volunteers evacuating elderly people from under shelling.
Someone measures the war currently going on in Ukraine by geopolitical ambitions, the confrontation between the civilized world and despotism. But I will say it more simply: for us it is a people's war. And a war for people.
That is why a human is at the center of every discussion at this Summit. That is why I invited the first ladies to the discussion. Because they use their experience and power every day to take care of people. This power is called soft, which at the same time does not mean that it is less powerful. Especially when there is unity.
So I invite first ladies and gentlemen, experts in various fields, celebrities to join the efforts. Together we must win the battle for a decent life for the Ukrainian people and learn the lessons that will help overcome possible future world crises.
First Lady of Ukraine
How to return normal life to Ukrainian children who suffered from the war will be discussed by this panel. We will discuss the renewal of the educational process in Ukraine and the best world experience that will help in this; educational initiatives for Ukrainian children abroad.
The permanent stress caused by war, the loss of loved ones, home, stability – all this destroys the physical and mental health of a nation. We will discuss rebuilding a healthy society through rebuilding the Ukrainian health care system, mental health and rehabilitation programs, medical evacuation, and the best international health support programs.
Ukrainian women are also on the front lines – and not only in the Armed Forces. They are doctors, teachers, volunteers, mothers who, in the conditions of war, are doing their best to keep up on all fronts. This panel will discuss the special mission of women in building the modern world, women's leadership during the war and its role in the post-war reconstruction.
