Kateryna Yushchenko Attends Sweet Darusia Performance at Ivan Franko Theater


10 October 2008 23:11

October 10, 2008, Head of the Supervisory Board of the Ukraine 3000 International Charitable Foundation Kateryna Yushchenko attended the Solodka Darusia [Sweet Darusia] performance based on Maria Matios’s novel of the same name. The play staged by the Chernivtsi Oblast olha Kobylianska Ukrainian Music and Drama Theater was hosted by the Kyiv Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theater with the support of Ukraine 3000 Foundation.

Renowned Ukrainian writer and poet Maria Matios was born December 19, 1959, in the village of Roztoky in Bukovyna. In 1982 she graduated from the Chernivtsi State University, the Ukrainian Philology department. Maria Matios started writing in the mid-1970s. At present she is member of the National Writers Union and Ukrainian Writers Association, laureate of the Blahovist literary prize, Volodymyr Batliak prize, and Taras Shevchenko Prize for literature (2005, for the Sweet Darusia novel). She was awarded the title of Ukraine’s Most Prolific Writer.

 Sweet Darusia was written in 2004. It’s a Ukrainian story set in the 1930s-1970s in Bukovyna and Halychyna. “A drama in three lives,” as the author defined her novel’s genre, is a moral warning that the history and every human being in all times, under all regimes are closely connected, while sin and atonement are material, almost palpable phenomena. The Sweet Darusia premiere took place May 28-29 in Lviv, at the Maria Zankovetska National theater.

World Giving Index 2014 Ukraine on place 103
The data we have here clearly does not represent the engagement of Ukrainians in charitable giving, comments Oleksandr Maksymchuk, President of the Association of Charities of Ukraine. Given the present situation in the country, Ukraine experiences an unusual positive growth in the charitable sector. For Ukrainians the engagement across all types of giving is now a commonplace activity. The Revolution of Dignity changed our society completely as both citizens and businesses throughout the country demonstrate high levels of social responsibility. The pro-European rallies united Ukrainians and manifested the importance of mutual help and support. Today we do everything in our power to help the soldiers who are defending our sovereignty in the east. And we are confident that in the future the generosity of our people will only grow stronger. »»
