I raise nine grandchildren by myself. My two daughters raise money for my treatment and surgery, so they have to earn money.
We do not sit idle — we have a large vegetable garden. During the attacks, I hid in the basement with my daughters and grandchildren. Four-year-old Bohdan suffered from the bombing the most. The stress made him very ill, and he still doesn't talk much.
It was so terrible at night when things started flying around!
We live in a small rural house with two rooms. Adults sleep in the kitchen.
I go through all the hardships of life and cry every day. I am seriously ill. I am afraid for my grandchildren that there will be no one to look after them. We save all the money that our daughters earn for a surgery.
