We have three children. We are the only family with children in Pivnichne that did not leave the village.
Son Edik must already study in the second grade, but the nearest school is seven kilometers away. So he is studying at home at least for now.
We are internal refugees from the village of Slavne, who can barely make ends meet. We try to do everything ourselves. We chop wood, and we also go to the shop, which is very far away.
There is no one to help us. My own mother gave up on me. I miss her so much.
We live in a house that was hit by a shell. We restored it as best as we could. We spend all our money on utilities and food.
