Ulyana

Ulyana is a tiny and charming girl with a heart flaw. She is in the hospital every two months.
When she was one, she slept in cellars, dropped to the ground at any sound, and already know that “Hail” and “Hurricane” are not merely “weather problems.” And as any other child from Lugansk, Pervomaysk, or Donetsk, she’s still terrified of any loud noise. Their building was hit many times but their apartment miraculously was untouched.
Across the street, there was a huge construction materials store, Epitsentr. It’s no longer there, nothing was left after 2014. There was a fire station next to it which was deliberately targeted, like other infrastructure sites which were the first to be taken out.

Ulyana has a mom and a brother. And that’s all.
Nobody else at all. There was a grandmother but she died. It’s difficult for someone elderly to live through bombings in their old age. There is no father.
No other relatives to help them. Mom works wherever she can, delivers utilities bills, washes floors. Takes any work. The woman has to raise two kids on her own, and one of them is disabled. And yes, they live in the hope Ulyana will outlive her heart flaw.
We learned of her in the Aid Center. Ulyana’s mom did not as for anything, the social workers told us she needs help.
They are simply surviving and don’t have enough food. Dear Lord, how many people like that are on the Donbass who have nobody to help them?

When our friends brought aid to the family, they were shocked at how much was brought. Even though it was not all that much…
Friends, thank you for your help and your caring!

In addition to food, we also helped with school supplies for the older one.
