My granddaughter, two-year-old Vlada, witnessed all the horrors of war when she was not even a year old. Since then, the child's eyes have been filled with fear. As soon as they start shooting, she immediately gets scared and cries.
In the winter of 2015, Vlada was just learning to walk when a mine exploded nearby. Splinters flew in all directions, It was a miracle that my daughter managed to survive. Her older brother covered her with his body. And at the beginning of August this year, everything happened again.
We are reminded of what we have experienced by the walls cut by shards. A man was killed in the next house across the street.
We don't have any money to repair our house. We have only grandmother's pension. And there are five of us. We used to save plant the garden, but now there is no water, and the supply of rainwater is running low. We won't have time to water anything.
