Help for Liudmyla’s newborn grandchild
Liudmyla Pozniakova and her family got to Dnipro due to military operations – their hometown was utterly destroyed. The Pozniakova family was under bombardment for a long time in occupied Severodonetsk. And then, there was a direct hit in their apartment. After that, they decided to leave the city to save their lives. Moreover, Liudmyla’s daughter-in-law was in the last month of pregnancy. It is impossible to give birth under such circumstances. Dnipro was the nearest safe city, and the family did not regret such a decision.
“We knew about ADRA Ukraine from social networks. I filled out the application and hoped they would help us,” says Liudmyla. “We already have a new family – my son has a daughter. There was a need to buy basic things for a newborn baby. And it was challenging with money.”
The family received financial assistance to rent housing and buy necessities for the adults and the newborn. Liudmyla expressed her great gratitude to the organisation for its timely support.
Liudmyla’s family has received assistance within the Lifesaving Evacuation, Assistance and Protection (LEAP) project with the support of the Canadian government. In addition to financial aid, this project also includes such areas of assistance as social transportation, evacuation (including people with reduced mobility), and psychological support.
