Join Us We Need Your Help
Good day! We are a family from Novyi Buh, the Mykolayiv region. 4 children live in our family. Our biological son Oleksiy is 15 years old, he is disabled. The eldest adopted son Dmytro is 16 years old, he is a student. Veronika is 10 years old, and she studies in the 4th grade. Artem is 7 years old, and he studies in the 2nd grade. After February 24, as for every Ukrainian family, our plans were crossed out. We planned a trip to Ukraine, we wanted to visit Lviv, we booked a hotel, excursions, and bought tickets. Now we live in constant fear for our children. Now the eldest daughter came to us with her husband and two children, they are also first graders. We stayed at home. Before the war, we worked as educators. In April, we wanted to take more children from the orphanage so that we could create a family-type home for them. We wanted to buy a bigger house for our family. I fear for the future of our children. I want our country to be free like it was. Since February 24, we received one humanitarian aid from the president. Now we need help with gadgets for teaching children. We need to buy 2 laptops, 1 xerox printer, we currently have 5 schoolchildren and 1 student.
Please help stop the destruction of our cities and villages, and the death of our people, and children. Before the war, there were orphaned children, and with the beginning of the war, there were even more orphans. There are even more disabled children who are left without arms and legs. Adults also become disabled. How many children and women are raped, and children and adults are killed. Please help end this war. We want our children to grow up happy, and smiling in a free country.
