A soft and funny monkey toy was one of the favourite toys of four-year-old Polina Chuiko from Keramik village in Yasynuvatskyi district of Donetsk region.
When shelling began in the village on the night of 29 August 2016, mother took Polina and hid under the bed with her. And the girl grabbed her favourite toy to take it with her. Mother saved her daughter and daughter saved her toy. In memory of that terrible night, the monkey toy had a rip on its neck.
The Chuiko family decided to give the toy to the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation in order to keep forever a symbolic reminder that children’s toys should bring joy and not get injured.
