"I am tired of hiding in basements and flinching from explosions"

views: 501

At my age, I had to go through a war that scattered my children and grandchildren in different places. It's good to have my youngest daughter by my side. She works as a nurse at our local hospital.

The hospital has not been heated for three years. Gas supply was damaged  at the beginning of the war, so it is still not there. Poor thing, she gets so cold at work that she can't warm up at home afterwards. But this house needs to be heated somehow, to  we heat it with the stove. Coal is expensive, and firewood too. We need to buy a lot to keep warm.

My daughter's salary is small, and my pension is  low, too. But in addition to this, we also need to eat, and buy medicine. And the prices are rising by leaps and bounds. How can one  survive in such conditions? Yes, and a communal apartment, that is, the light has also risen in price and continues to become more expensive.

And if it wasn't for Rinat Akhmetov's Humanitarian Aid, it would have been very, very difficult. It is not so easy to go and buy the bottle of oil or 2-3 packs of pasta, cereals, flour. No matter what you say, the help is good for us, people who live on a dime.

I am very grateful to Rinat Akhmetov for taking care of us, poor pensioners, and not just us, from the very beginning of the war. I am grateful to the volunteers who do not spare their time and effort to somehow help us who need attention.

God grant them all health and long life. I hope that the fighting will end soon and there will be peace on our land. My nerves can't stand it anymore, I don't have any strength to look at it. I am tired of hiding in basements, tired of flinching at various explosions. My health is already weak, it has become quite bad, and not only for me.

People became nervous and angry. Many have left and are afraid to return. After all, all people react differently to what is happening. But hope, after all, is not dead yet, that everything will soon get better.

And God help us, I would like to repeat once again  - let  the people who help us be  healthy and happy. I wish long life to them.
