Solution to win: Ukrainian bookstore collects books for wounded soldiers

Ukraine's municipal bookstore Syayvo Knygy (Light of the Book) in Kyiv launched a campaign of collecting books for wounded soldiers who stay in hospitals.

What's the problem?

Ukrainian defenders bravely fight for their land. Brutal fighting takes place in Donbas, the eastern region of Ukraine. The defenders often get wounded and then transported to hospitals. Their rehabilitation takes a lot of time.

What's the solution?

Syayvo Knygy (Light of the Book) bookstore decided to launch a campaign of collecting books for hospitals. These books might allow those who are being treated to distract themselves from painful symptoms and spend time less boringly in the hospital bed.

How does it work?

Anyone can share Ukrainian and world classics (except russian), fiction, comics, and popular books by modern Ukrainian and foreign authors.

Hospitals will be especially grateful for books on the history of Ukraine and any historical literature.

You can also bring non-fiction: books on the history of brand creation, stories of famous personalities, memoirs, biographies, and autobiographies.

Books are accepted only in Ukrainian. The campaign lasts until March 31.

Also, until May, you can return russian books for the waste paper to the bookstore.

Proceeds from book recycling will be transferred to the "Gurkit" charity fund, which buys necessities for Ukrainian defenders.
