With Gratitude Testimonial

By Anne Babb | General Secretary

We are a large family with parents and 6 children.

On February 24, 2022, our life changed dramatically, a war began in our country. Rocket attacks and shelling were directed at our city. There were very frequent air raids and loud explosions. We were expecting the birth of our sixth child. It was dangerous to leave, so we stayed at home. Our children had to sleep in the corridor on the floor, as the sirens sounded both day and night. Our youngest  was born to the sound of sirens and the first days of life had to be sheltered in the basement of the maternity hospital. In October and November, massive missile attacks on the energy structure of Ukraine began, as a result of which most of it was destroyed. We were forced to live for several days without electricity, respectively without heat, water, the ability to cook food and wash with warm water. These circumstances made our life difficult, as there was a baby in my family. Our children were morally and psychologically exhausted by life without the necessary amenities and in the regime of constant air raids and explosions, so we made the decision to leave for a safe country.

On January 14, 2023, we left the country and went to Romania. Romania received us warmly and kindly. Since then, our life has changed a lot. Our children sleep peacefully in comfortable beds and do not wake up from explosions. We have heat, electricity, water, internet for children's education and everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Thanks to the care of the "Blue Cross" our children have a full and healthy life, school, hobbies and friends.

We wish God's blessing to everyone involved in helping our family. Sincere thanks from us and our children.

Family that is safe
