JUNE 6th. CELEBRATING IN ACTION

7th June 2022

YMCA Europe celebrated the 178th anniversary of our Movement on June 6th in partnership with YMCA Setubal, Portugal and YMCA Ukraine.

More than ever this year’s Founders Day is marked by the effects of the war in Ukraine and the response that local and national YMCAs are providing to the humanitarian crisis.

YMCA Setubal chose this relevant day to officially open their first apartment specifically set for a family that left Ukraine weeks ago.

The project was supported by the City of Setubal and other relevant local partners that contributed to this achievement. More information about this project here.

The keys were handed to the family by Viktor Serbulov, Secretary General of YMCA Ukraine during an event that gathered representatives of the local government, other community leaders and beneficiaries of YMCA programmes.

Another nine apartments are being adapted now for this same purpose at Belavista neighborhood where the YMCA is present providing socially relevant programmes for youth and families.
