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.
