Diana Buhrova from Dnipro
Join Us We Need Your Help
Good afternoon. My name is Diana, these are my children, and I have an older daughter. She is at work right now. There are 4 children in the family. We are from the city of Dnipro. My husband stayed in Dnipro to defend the city from the beginning of the war. When the war started, there was an offensive, and we didn’t know how it would end, so I ended up in western Ukraine with my children, and my husband stayed in Dnipro. he has been a volunteer since the beginning of the war, saving people from very dangerous areas. At first, when there was an attack on Kharkiv, he took people out of Kharkiv, then he moved his activities to Luhansk and Donetsk regions, and now he is still carrying out his volunteer activities in Donbas, saving people, animals, delivering humanitarian aid. he has been traveling to the last part of the war when constant snipers are working there. He still travels with his team to Severodonetsk and Lysychansk. now he is constantly traveling in the Bakhmut direction. The most terrible event was when my husband lost contact for three days. He went to Bakhmut and there was no communication with him for three days, then we were all very scared. My parents and my husband’s parents stayed in Dnipro, they are very old and weak, and my brother is also there, he is disabled, and he died two weeks ago. Well, if it were not for the war, medical care would be better. Maybe he would have managed to revive his life. We live in the village of Novi Oslavy, Ivano-Frankivsk region. We were given an old house here for free, but there is no water or amenities. I need financial help so that I can rent a house because it is very difficult to live without basic amenities. This year we did not receive any help, last year we received food aid, and 2-4 times we were sent financial aid, but we will not receive help from the state because we are from Dnipro and there are no hostilities there. I work, have a small business, opened a private enterprise, and am a massage therapist. I earn money to buy food and clothes for my children. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough money to rent a house. I see the future of Ukraine very, very well, so I don’t want to run abroad and I don’t want to take my children abroad. I want us to live in our country and I want my children not to forget the Ukrainian language, I want them not to forget their homeland. I want us to survive and pass these trials with dignity and for our country to experience a very large economic and political growth. I see this as the future development of my country. I am sure that after this terrible war, our country will flourish. I pray for this very much, this is my life’s main goal.
