- Projects aiming to help persons with no possibilities to get access to long-Covid rehabilitation.
- Projects which aim to improve the quality of life of children, women and senior citizens.
- Projects whose mission is to empower and aid victims of violence and domestic abuse, exacerbated by the stress of the pandemic.
