During our two-week stay in Ukraine, we collaborated with two schools and a home dedicated to caring for abandoned children with developmental disabilities. Each of us contributed in a unique way. Our activities were concentrated within a half-hour distance from the Romanian border, as we didn’t venture deeper into Ukraine due to the conflict. Many individuals in the schools had sought refuge from conflict-affected regions like Kyiv, Odesa, and Kharkiv. When the chaos began, and the ACT4Ukraine team sprang into action, the schools initially accommodated a larger number of displaced individuals. Over time, some found shelter with local families in the villages, while others moved on. Those who remained found temporary respite within the school premises.
I recognized the ACT FOUNDATION platform back in 2018 and found it to be an exceptional platform where compassionate individuals can join forces and make a meaningful difference for those in need. Since childhood, I have been deeply troubled by the inequality that exists on our planet, which has propelled me to take action from within. Ideas flow naturally, and people come together to bring them to fruition. It is not a matter of choice; it is a drive from the depths of my being. And for the past four years, I have been volunteering for ACT, and my enthusiasm continues to grow.
