First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska held a conversation with First Lady of the Republic of Latvia Andra Levite and wife of the President of the European Council Amélie Derbaudrenghien.

The interlocutors, in particular, discussed the National Program of Psychological Assistance to Ukrainian Victims of War and the program of prosthetics and rehabilitation of victims of hostilities.

"Before the war, I was involved in programs on a barrier-free environment for all Ukrainians. It is obvious that after the war, the demand for a barrier-free environment - both physical and psychological - will increase, because we have many injured people both physically and psychologically. So we are already working to ensure that they have a full life," said Olena Zelenska.

The wife of the President of Ukraine also discussed with the First Lady of Latvia the issue of education for Ukrainian children abroad. In particular, Andra Levite will present bilingual alphabets to Ukrainian children temporarily staying in Latvia.

"This is a very nice contribution to the continuation of education for Ukrainian children, I am sure they will learn a new language. And it is very valuable for us that Latvia has supported our project "Books without Borders", when Ukrainian children's literature is published abroad under Ukrainian layouts. Our families often left with nothing at all, let alone books. And each of these books will be a bridge to home, to a quiet life for children," said Olena Zelenska.
