Olesya Shypova from Mykolayiv
Join Us We Need Your Help
Good day. My name is Olesya, and I am 39. I have a daughter, she is fourteen. Before the war started, we lived a happy life, and everything was going well with us. But since the war started, our life has completely changed for the worst. The worst day in our life was March 7th. On this day, our city Mykolayiv was bombed for more than 12 hours nonstop. After that, we stayed in the basement all day and night, as we didn’t know what to expect. My daughter was very strong during these hard times. But when our neighbors started massively evacuating the city- she became very stressed and nervous. So in May, we decided to leave for another town, which was far from the frontline. We are renting an apartment here. We received humanitarian help from Red Cross. We also received financial support from the government. I am unemployed now, as my firm is closed due to the war. We truly believe that Ukraine will win and we will get back home and live a peaceful life as we did before.
