The Odesa team worked hard with HIV + prisoners who are preparing for release and made every effort to ensure that none of them was left without help. The activity was implemented by the city NGO “Association XXI Century” in Kherson and Odesa.
The event will take place during the celebration of the City Day from 11:00 to 17:00, in Shevchenko Park (near the outdoor performance scene “Rakushka” (Shell)). In addition to the RESPECT project, 16 USAID’s partner projects and organizations of the city and nearby territorial communities will be presented in the USAID Town. Visitors are sure to have an interesting programme.
The USAID Town events are also planned in Lutsk on August 25 and in Poltava on September 23.
