Background

The Oselya community was set up in 2001 in Lviv, in the west of Ukraine to help the homeless and peo-ple with addictions. In 2003 it became a community providing a home and work for people in need, en-abling them to help each other out, regain their dignity and give meaning to their lives. Their first public action was a Christmas meal in 2003 for homeless people. For several years, they were the only organi-sation in the region working in this field. The community publishes Prosto Neba, sold by the homeless and unemployed people. It’s a member of the international network of street newspapers. The community became a member of Emmaus International in 2010.
