65th day of the war in Ukraine
Many Ukrainians have left their homes more than two months ago. They have taken off their warm beds and hit the road, not knowing where they will sleep the next day. They are from different towns and cities, different professions and education, different ages, but 130 of them are united by their current home: the Dzerelny sanatorium.
In Dzerelny all those who applied for help were accommodated. The management of the sanatorium undertook to provide accommodation and meals. Families tried to be given a separate room with the necessary furniture. Where some did not have with them seasonal clothing and hygiene products at all. All the residents were able to organise their lives with the help of volunteer movements and the support of local authorities.
Each of the 130 stories is unique, imbued with the instinct of self-protection and the instinct of a mother. There are now 31 underage children in the sanatorium. In spite of the war conditions, they have all joined distance learning in schools, some in their primary and some in local institutions. Pre-schoolers are looked after by their mothers, and the residents themselves have set up Montessori development groups and a psychological support group for the children. There are also displaced persons with tails in the sanatorium.
So we would like to wish every family such a welcome homecoming. Find a star in your life whose shining light you can navigate. Learn to visualise what you dream of. Weave it into the present and the future!
