There are 68 Vika-tagged posts on my blog. I wrote about the girl named Vika almost seventy times. I reminded everyone every time that the young beauty lives in Lugansk. That she has diabetes. The she lost her sight. Suffered from TB. Lost a brother. Had a kidney fail. And it seems it’s becoming more difficult for me to write about this girl.
Not because I have been repeating this 68 times. But because Vika herself reads these posts.
Vika has a computer for the blind which we and you managed to organize for her. Before, these posts were read for her by her mother. Not only posts about them–they read nearly everything I write. But before the mother could skip certain parts. Now Vika can read it all herself. She often writes replies, in person, sending smileys and always trying to make me smile and think everything is fine.
And it is difficult for me to remind her of the situation in which she found herself.
I would much prefer to write joyful stories, but when it comes to Vika these stories are always different. It’s a difficult situation. Sveta and Vika would really struggle without your help. So much so that I don’t even know how retell the same story every time.

This time, I want to write about Sergey from Belgorod. Every six months, like clockwork, he sends “talking” test strips for a special glucose-meter which he bought several years ago specially for Vika.
In addition to the test strips. Sergey also donated the talking meter. I wrote in the previous post Vika has eye pressure problems. She must constantly monitor it. Vika is also very dependent on her mother. Without her, she couldn’t do much, she can’t see, after all.
Such a glucose-meter is therefore of great help.
Sergey, big thanks to you! And I shouldn’t even single our Sergey since he’s not alone, the whole family is helping. The wife actively helps and worries. I remember well how they delivered the first glucose-meter. We were standing in the freezing air in the center of Moscow and talked until we turned blue. They were passing through so our meeting lasted only minutes. We talked about the Donbass, the war, and that we must not abandon them. They deliver test strips to their son who lives in Moscow. We often catch the guy–he’s a young and handsome man.
Big thanks and a low bow!
I also want to separately thank Denis from Australia. Probably the majority of assistance for Vika comes from him. This reader whom I don’t know from a remote continent sends money for Vika nearly every month.
That’s how we are able to buy the medications and food she needs. Also deliver money Vika needs to pay for additional tests.
Vika requires a massive quantity of medications every month, starting with test strips, eye pressure drops, and ending with kidney preparations and vitamins.
Thank you Denis! I can’t imagine how we would have managed without you.
Friends, thank you for participating in the effort to save this girl.
