Ukrainian family holidays

By Olga Janaszek-Serafin | Project Leader

On April 16, in a beautiful, holiday atmosphere, far away from their homes, Doctor Piotr Janaszek’s PAY IT FORWARD Foundation Ukrainian charges had spent the Easter. As befits this beautiful Christian tradition, the tables were laden with Ukrainian delicacies.

Pielmieni (a type of yeast dumplings) were present, salad with smoked meat, eggs with horseradish, Ukrainian borscht, stuffed pancakes, liver cakes, dried fish, pies with mushroom stuffing, stuffed eggs and of course various sweets among which Pascha – a tall, yeast babka with nuts – reigned and is used as a Christmas wafer.

- Dear Ukrainians! Although you are far from home, but close together, heart by heart, let’s wish each other a happy Easter. We all probably have one dream: for this war to end, and for us, to return to Ukraine, Christ has risen, Alleluia! – said Volodymyr Kushko, who came to us from the Zhitomir region. He speaks Polish well and he works at the Center for Non-Governmental Organizations in Konin, where he deals with helping the Ukrainians.

There were conversations, food tasting, remembering holidays in Ukraine. Kids received colorful bags with sweets and each family was given a daffodils and hyacinths in pots that symbolize something new, a new life.

- We are grateful to donors from around the world, employees of the Foundation and volunteers, thanks to whom, we have a peaceful home, here in Konin with great living conditions and we can safely wait out what is happening in our dear Ukraine. Thank you! Without you, would be no “us”… - said Amelia Kushko, trying to hide her emotions.

Easter breakfast turned to a late lunch. There was even a concert with Ukrainian ballads performed by Sergiej Troszyn. It felt extremely pleasant, home-like and cozy, despite the rain outside. And that’s what it’s all about. Glory to Ukraine!
