"After being injured, I want to get off the train myself without using a Zimmer frame"

views: 1159

This is my native town! All my relatives, countrymen, and friends are from there. I am very grateful to them for everything: for their support, for their understanding, for their help. I am grateful to all the people who helped us, who were not indifferent to my family. Thank you very much. I would also like to express my gratitude to the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation.

After being injured, I want to get off the train myself without using a Zimmer frame

We were at home, sitting in the hall. The light went out. The phone rang. The phone was on the refrigerator in the kitchen. I jumped out there. The younger child was staying at the grandmother's. Then an explosion occurred. Fragments of glass flew into the kitchen, the bedroom. They pierced the playpen and hit the fingers and the stomach. He had a hole in the stomach.

It is very difficult for internal refugees. It is very difficult to find an apartment, because not everyone wants to rent out. Nobody cares for us. The only thing we have is people's help. Thank you all very much. The support of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation gives is important, so I would like to express my gratitude as a mother and as a grandmother. And he's really good man. We probably don't have any more such people in the country.

I really want to feel safe and steady. And I would  really like to be able to get off the train by myself. Not using this Zimmer frame or  someone else's help. I want to get up and go out to my people just like… I try, I try very hard.

What would I like? I just want peace in Donbass, peace in town. Oh ... I just want to get on the train and come home, to my street, to my people, to my apartment. That's all I want now.
