Ukrainian volunteers take part in 'Clean-up' raves to rebuild damaged parts of the country

Whilst the war between Russia and Ukraine is still ongoing, volunteers have been taking part in ‘clean-up raves’ to rebuild some of the areas most damaged by the fighting. 

At one of the events in the village of Yahidne, a DJ took to the decks to provide an endless stream of Techno while volunteers helped rebuild local homes.

Talking to Euronews, Tatyana Byrianova, a volunteer for Ukraine’s Repair Together organisation, said: “We came here and wanted to support people who survived after the Russian occupation. In Kyiv, it was a normal situation, but here it was really awful.

“People left their homes, and their houses were broken, and a lot of houses were ruined. We wanted to help them rebuild, fix their houses and clean the territory,” she explained.

“Techno parties, especially rave festivals, it was our lifestyle before, so we miss it, and we want to come back to normal life, but our normal life now is volunteering.”

Most of the young volunteers came from Kyiv to help rebuild homes across the country, while others joined from Lviv and even further around the globe, including the US, Germany and Portugal.
