"We live apart, in rented apartments"

views: 1057

It's the first time we've gathered together in three years. My aunt Nina Viktorivna and her granddaughter Kateryna arrived with their children – two relatives and two foster children. In 2014, they moved to a place where it was safer.

We all are in tears. We live apart, in rented apartments; all this is hard to bear. Everyone had houses and apartments…

Kateryna 's children left, but the adopted 23-year-old Slavik remained. Due to arthritis, he is confined to a wheelchair. Due to the fighting and lack of money in 2014, he was left without vital medications for three months. The pills were very expensive. Slavik understands that he is going nowhere without Kateryna, and she is afraid for the children.
