The Vegan Weekend charity festival hosted by the Every Animal NGO  took place in Kyiv.

Over $5,000 were collected for the needs of the Ukrainian military.

These money were raised for vegan rations and necessities for women soldiers of the Women volunteers movement.

This event was not just aimed at raising funds but at promoting vegan lifestyle.

About 850 people took part in the festival. They did various activities:

  • tasted vegan food,
  • listened to lectures about vegan rations and women at the front,
  • bought a gift at the fair,
  • enjoyed a stand-up from Ukrainian comedian Vasyl Baidak,
  • danced on a DJ set,
  • could get a military trophy in the auction.

Rubryka's article about a vegan lifestyle was recognized by Solutions Journalism as one of the best solutions stories in 2022. The story of a NGO from Uzhgorod which creates vegan meals and nutritious rations for Ukrainian displaced persons is worth checking out.
