The organization Repair Together has been hosting clean-up raves in Ukraine, where people come together to dance and clean communities that have been damaged during the ongoing war. Over 200 people recently gathered in the village of Yahidne, where a DJ played electronic music while participants picked up debris with shovels and wheelbarrows. Repair Together added the party element to their clean-up plans to draw in as many volunteers as they could. The raves give Ukrainians a chance to destress and have fun while rebuilding their hometowns. Since the war began, Repair Together has cleaned up over 200 houses and 16 villages around the country.
