More Info

Our relative's story: Our relatives live on the outskirts of the city of Cherkasy in central Ukraine. On the morning of February 24, they awoke to explosions. The missile strikes hit a military base of Dubiyivka Village, 9.3 miles from them. An evacuation was ordered. They packed their suitcases, got into a cellar, and waited for more information. There are many strategic and military targets near their village: the military base in the village of Dubiyivka (9.3 miles), the military base in the village of Orshanets (6.2 miles), the airport (6.2 miles), and a chemical fertilizer plant of Azot (12.4 miles). Additionally, Cherkassy has a large dam and road over the Dnieper River leading to Kiev. Military aircraft and helicopters flew over their homes. The children were very afraid of the noise. On the second day, February 25th, active military operations were carried out in the Uman district, which is 111 miles from them. The decision to flee was made on the night of the second day. The children cried and were very afraid. One of the deciding factors that led to their decision to flee Ukraine was the health of our aunt who has diabetes. She requires constant monitoring of blood sugar levels and insulin. There are no guarantees that she would receive the necessary healthcare and lifesaving medicine in a war-torn country.  Additionally, she has issues with blood pressure, which has been negatively impacted by the war in Ukraine, and needs constant attention. One of the children does not tolerate gluten and requires a special diet. With young children in their arms, they headed to west Ukraine on February 26th. They crossed the border into Poland on February 28th and reached out to us in the United States for assistance to help them reach and resettle as refugees in the United States.
