My name is Svitlana and this is my personal appeal to help my sister Barbara, and her two little girls aged 4 and 5, and my Mum to survive as refugees in Ukraine.

Two months ago Barbara and her two girls were forced to leave their home town of Luhansk, in Eastern Ukraine, and travel across the country in search of safety. You may have heard of the conflict in Luhansk, but what is reported is a much diluted version of the reality. Innocent citizens are killed on daily basis, infrastructure is destroyed.

Barbara left home town with two bags and two children, most of their possessions had to be left behind. I cannot begin to imagine what it must feel like to have nothing in the world, to flee your home and not know where you will live, how you will eat how you will secure a safe future for your children. I also cannot believe what has happened to the place I was born, streets I walked down as a child have been destroyed  and people I knew have been killed. No one should have to face the war especially a child.

Barbara was one of the lucky as she escaped before the worst of the violence, but the price she has paid is the loss of everything she had. As a single Mum Barbara’s life was difficult enough, but now it is almost impossible and she has two children looking to her to fix everything and make it safe.

Barbara desperately needs help. Unfortunately the possibility of her coming to live with me in the UK is unlikely due to visa restrictions.  What I can give is not enough for her to rebuild her life and create a new and safe life. She struggles to house, cloth and feed her children.

Anything you can give, including advice or contacts will be much appreciated.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.
