Like many places in eastern Ukraine, Kherson has been totally destroyed. Everywhere there are buildings in ruins, half-demolished office blocks without a roof and houses that are completely destroyed. Olga shows us with a sad face that their house, garden and barn are completely in ruins. Inside, their house looks like a garbage dump, there is no roof left and there are holes everywhere. Vyacheslev worked as a contractor, but all his tools and machines were destroyed. Step by step they will have to rebuild everything. Olga sighs, "Fortunately, we are still alive. With God, we will overcome everything. Thanks to the help we get, we keep it up."
Cherson is still under fire. Our local staff recently went there to hand out food parcels. The people eagerly received the packages and gratefully embraced our employees. One of them said, "You can't imagine how important it is to us that we are not forgotten. We can only keep it up thanks to help from people like you."
