WC is now supporting foster families in Ukraine like this one. Families are taking in up to 10 children who are orphaned from the war. We are also helping children in Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps—children like Karina.
Karina is 16. She writes: “We were forced to leave the city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region because the war had started. Our house is destroyed. We arrived in Transcarpathia in May 2022. Twenty-four animals came with us. Dad works as a rescuer in the fire department. Dad stayed there to save people. I am very proud of my dad! In 2014, Dad was the first to go to save people in the city of Debaltsevo under shelling.
Dad is my hero. I played sports. In February 22, there was shelling and I was injured. I was in a cast on my leg for more than 2 months, the other leg was cut. The war destroyed all our plans and desires. My dream is to return home when the war ends. And now I plan to study to become a border guard. I also want to defend my country! I am finishing the 11th grade with flying colors.”—Karina
