Dear Friends,
Situation in Chernihiv is hard. Sometimes I even can’t recognize areas of the city. Russians are destroying it and still can’t open the way to Kyiv. Already 26 days.
People don’t have electricity and water, the only way to cook is on a fire.
We feel your suport every day. Abbey Grimbergen Abdij Grimbergen today did a fantastic job and sent 7 vans with trailers to our warehouse in Przemysl. 20 days ago father Karel Karel Stautemas started his first trip and now we are receiving so much help from the Abbey. Thank you very much for all you are doing, all your suport and prayers.
All this goods will de delivered to Przemysl, the Poland-Ukraine border and after with the truck to Chernihiv area. We have our own warehouse, Роман Коломієць works there. He is is also from Chernihiv and a big part of our team.
Everyday day so many people leave the city. You may see how evacuation looks like. In any transport which can move. There are no any official humanitarian corridors and it’s only thanks to volunteers.
Baby Julia from my mums basement is evacuated! I’m so happy for her. Imagine first she has seen sun only after 2,5 weeks of her life. Child of the war was born in the maternity hospital basement.
My mum went to the shop first time after 24 of February. And couldn’t stop crying. In Chernihiv so many people don’t have food and water any more and on West of Ukraine the life still seems to be normal with full shops, gaz and electricity.
Thank you for the donations.
500 euro we received for the last 2 days.
And spent 400 euro for the gaz in Ukraine and help during evacuation.
Stay safe and Slava Ukraini.
