The 'United World Cultures Foundation" introduced the guests-photographers from Norway to the inhabitants of the Ukrainian village, their lifestyle and customs, as well as to settlers from the east of Ukraine temporarily living in the boarding house "Dzherelo" in Pushcha-Vodytsia.
Photographers arrived in Ukraine to get acquainted with the inhabitants of Ukraine in a couple of days, to get a deeper knowledge of history, to plunge into Ukrainian culture. And most importantly - to take new photos, which by the end of the trip they will show to their friends at home.
Ukraine is a big, beautiful, diverse, hospitable country. And at any time we are very pleased to welcome guests from abroad. On the last day of April, photographers from Norway came to Pushcha-Vodytsia to visit the friends of the United World Cultures Foundation, immigrants from the East of Ukraine, temporarily residing in the boarding house "Dzherelo".
Photographers arrived in Kyiv to get acquainted with the inhabitants of Ukraine in a couple of days, to get a deeper knowledge of history, to plunge into Ukrainian culture. And most importantly - to take new photos, which by the end of the trip will show to their friends at home.
They came to the residents of the boarding house "Dzherelo" not only to provide financial support, but to give the memory of the acquaintance in the photographs. Time flies insanely and these moments cannot be repeated, but again and again you can return to them, looking through photos.
Photography is beauty. Love for the beautiful is instilled through it. The Foundation staff prepared a program for the guests: they were able to visit the villages of the Kyiv region and communicate with the inhabitants, enrich their collection of photographs. Photo-cameras in the hands of guests attracted the attention of residents of settlements. Photographers always tried to carry camera with them to capture the everyday life of the village: children and parents, elderly people and ordinary Ukrainian landscapes.
Cultural cooperation is something that will remain for children, grandchildren, something that will be history tomorrow.
"It was a very good, sincere and warm meeting," said Odd Opsahl Nielsen. "Thank you for the work the Foundation is doing, and we look forward to our fruitful cooperation."
Lyudmila Lysenko, the program manager of the UWCF, summarized the meeting: "Thanks to our friends from Norway for the tremendous work you are doing to bring our peoples closer. Together with you, the UWCF makes small steps, which, we think, will have a huge effect. We will always be glad to see you at all actions, fests, we will invite you as friends and people who do a lot for the world to learn more about Ukraine. "
We hope that for foreigners Ukraine is a country they would want to come back to. Welcome!
