Within the 12th Ecumenical Social Week “Responsibility vs Populism,” a charity auction “Belief in Life” was held. Women – Ukrainian public figures created these

papercuttings during a master class under the guidance of well-known artist Dariia Alioshkina. Later, they were exhibited in the lobby of Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytsky's Center. And on the third day of the Forum, papercuttings were sold at the charity auction. The event was attended by both the performers themselves and those who wanted to buy these works of art and thus help prematurely born children.

All the money received at the auction, namely 42,000 UAH, was donated to help the prematurely born children, who are being taken care of by the CF “Nemovlia” (Baby) "We held this event as a part of the 12th Ecumenical Social Week “Responsibility vs Populism.” Today the participants showed a clear example of responsibility. After all, they helped to extend the life of young children,” – noted Oksana Ilenkiv, Coordinator of the Forum.

Among the authors of papercuttings are: Oksana Yurynets, Ukrainian politician (People's Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the 8th convocation), scientist, public figure; Olha Kuzmenko, mother of Andrii Kuzmenko (Scriabin); Oksana Vynnytska-Yusypovych, Honorary Consul of Canada in Ukraine; Nataliia Buchynska, People's Artist of Ukraine; Olha Filatova-Kryvetska, founder of the Edem Resort Medical and SPA; Olena Zablotska, dentist at the Zablotskyi Clinic; Andriana Malska, co-founder of the Healthy Children Charitable Foundation, Khrystyna Berehovska, an art critic; Nataliia Klymovska, Vice-Rector for Development and Communications of UCU and others.
