Program for the return of children stolen from Ukraine

The Orphans Feeding Foundation and its founder Mariam Lambert have already been able to return 36 children illegally deported from Ukraine. The cost of returning one child is about 2000 euros. The Foundation officially cooperates with the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and we have also received confirmation from three Ukrainian human rights organizations that the program is working. There are about 20,000 registered requests from parents to law enforcement agencies in Ukraine alone; less than 400 were returned (data from the Ukrainian state portal Children of War. You too support Bring Kids Back UA.

Fundraising for coliwings of the Ark

Why do we need coliving now? In Russia, almost every day there are "military" roundups of conscripts, and military recruitment officers desperately call bases and threaten to force them to show up, allegedly to check their documents. Russia has banned the "LGBT movement." This means an even wider group is being persecuted. Support the Ark fundraising. It costs the Ark $14,000 a month to run the coliving operation. Read more.

Petition "Don't be silent"

The topic of politics is banished from everyday life, and when we try to talk about it after a couple of minutes we find a person who says that politics is not here. We were told that politics, if you don't do it, will come and do everyone. On February 24, 2022 Russian politics has taken over not only us, but the whole world, let's finally take matters into our own hands. Sign and circulate our petition Petition "Don't be silent", discuss politics and help civil society.

On February 16, 2024, we gathered in front of the Russian Embassy at the address Rua Visconde de Santarém 71, in the place where we hold rallies every week, to honor the memory of Alexey Navalny. Then a spontaneous memorial was created in his memory. We keep it clean, bring flowers, and restore it after attacks by vandals. We are currently working on a permanent memorial.

Come too, bring flowers, meet like-minded people. Do not give up. Please remember that according to the rules of the Lisbon City Hall, candles must be taken with you after the meeting at the memorial. You can leave flowers.
