"I spent my entire pregnancy hiding in basements"

views: 687

We live in frontline Chermalyk. Our window in the room has been covered with iron and boards for six months, and even on a sunny day it is dark inside. This is because of the shells, when they fall, the fragments do not fly inside. When a shell fell in the garden, the fragments scattered.

Since the beginning of the war, I have been afraid for my five children. They are restless. They are very afraid of shooting. The youngest Ruslan was born three months ago.

I spent my entire pregnancy hiding in basements. The birth was difficult, the child was born weak. I gave all my savings to save it. I didn't even have enough money to buy food.

Ex-mother-in-law sheltered me with my children, although there are already a lot of people in her house. There are ten of us living there now, in four rooms.

The main problem is the lack of water.

Every morning I come with buckets to the neighbors, fill all the containers we have. We survive thanks to humanitarian aid.
