Krasnogorovka is a grey zone, a buffer between the area controlled by the terrorists and the free territory of Ukraine. Tatjana Nikolajevna’s apartment on the 4th floor in a house with only two families left has no water, heating, gas … but broken window panes. Volunteers installed a cast-iron stove and the grandmother and her grandson collect tree branches and paper for heating their wooden house. The cast-iron stove is used to cook when electricity is cut off by shelling and to heat water for washing. It is completely dark in the middle of the day because the panes are stuffed with rags and this “is not a problem” for Vadim when he does his homework or practices drawing.
Thanks to EuroHope4UA “European Hope for Ukrainian Children of War”, the family moved to a safe place in Donskoe village located in Volnovakha District that is far away from the war zone. Now they live in a decent house with windows and heating and are provided with further assistance by local volunteers.
