Support Story - Nancy

We are posting a series of articles with stories from our employees in Ukraine in their own words.  Below is one of those stories; if you'd like to read more, click here.



My name is Nancy, and the war caught me while I was in central Ukraine. The main problem is that our house does not have an equipped bomb shelter (like many houses in Ukraine), there is only a basement. The government does not recommend using the basement to hide from missiles due to the risk of being trapped under rubble without access to food, water, and air. Therefore, the best option for us is to hide in an apartment, using the “rule of two walls”. We are constantly on standby to leave the apartment, taking with us our cat and two backpacks with food, water, medicine and documents.
