In the 1980s, the first volunteers led by Czesława Raubiszko began cleaning up the cemetery. The initiative grew and turned into the "Zgoda" Association of Poles in Kyiv. Other Polish organizations, residents of Kyiv and diplomats also take care of the graves. Volunteers from Poland also come to help.
