Ukrainian society is ready to invest a lot in supporting the military and veterans. However, there is another category of people whose contribution is underestimated: the family and friends of wounded military and veterans. For many, the work of caregivers remains invisible. At the same time, for a caregiver, it becomes a lifelong job, often crowding out all other areas, including proper rest. Moreover, this work is virtually unpaid. We want to draw attention to the support of these people by both society and the state, as they take over many of the functions of the state.
