"My husband couldn't talk due to the stress"

views: 847

The walls are all that remains of our house after the shelling in September 2014. I've been coming here every day for almost two years. Our dogs are waiting for me here.

We moved from the destroyed house to our daughter's in Donetsk. However, we couldn't escape the shelling even there. My husband couldn't talk  due to the stress. We spent all our savings on the treatment. I tried to do the necessary injections myself.

We can't leave a dangerous place, because all our documents burned in our house. We still live where according to the address reference.

I take care of my sick husband. Furthermore, I support my 88- year-old neighbor. She lives alone in her daughter's apartment. Her house also burned down. The neighbor can barely move. She can hear all the attacks in the apartment. She can't go down to the basement on her own.
