Lily moved back to Ukraine last year. We were climbing partners and best friends. In the last couple of weeks she managed to escape Kharkiv with her parents. She left every thing behind. This will help her buy a laptop.
Lily and I met in 2018, as belay partners at the former Earth Treks (now Movement) Crystal City. Last year, she moved back to Ukraine to reconnect with her family and her culture. When the war began, she hid at a cellar close to Kharkiv - she stayed there, until she realized she need to leave. For four days, she crossed the country until the border with Poland. Every time I talked with her, she was worried that they would not let her bring her sister's dog and the cats into Poland. It was heartbreaking. She is in Warsaw now - I can't imagine what she has been through. I want to help. My colleague who's hosting her suggested a laptop, which would help her on all the searches and settle in she needs to do. She will need a house, and a car, and learn a new language. It will be a long journey. the hope is that this small contribution may help her give the first steps. Thank you for your help!
