“Often, the Russian artillery fire interrupts our work, but we continue to help, because they await us eagerly.”

In the villages of Vorozhba and Yunakivka, Ukraine, 23 dedicated social workers face extreme conditions daily to provide home care for 324 elderly residents. Despite the challenges, their commitment to care is unwavering.

Daily Challenges

  • Temperature Extremes: From -20 degrees to +30 degrees.
  • Daily Commute: 15 kilometers on a bicycle, every day.
  • Proximity to Danger: Only 7 kilometers from the Russian border and within range of artillery fire.

These social workers prepare meals, provide personal care, offer companionship, nursing care, and carry out household tasks for the elderly.

With LifeLine Ukraine.org, we are determined to support these heroes by providing two passenger vans. This will allow them to spend less time commuting in harsh weather and more time caring for the elderly.

We aim to collaborate with Dutch home care organizations to modernize and professionalize the administration and planning of home care services in Vorozhba and Yunakivka.

This project has been generously funded by one of our donors, but many similar healthcare and reconstruction projects still need support. If you are interested in cooperating with us on these initiatives, please reach out.

Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of the elderly and the dedicated social workers in Eastern Ukraine. Together, we can ensure they receive the care and resources they need, despite the challenges they face daily.
