Inquiries from the Ukrainian side are increasing. More and more people are asking for financial support. People are running out of reserves. They cannot work and they suffer from these conditions. We thank everyone who supports us in this. If you want to provide financial support:

Please contact us if you need a donation receipt, can offer living space or would like to link up.

Who can help? Looking for, sooner or later: living space for rent (room or small apartment) for a handicapped 70-year-old lady. She is dependent on a wheelchair and therefore needs barrier-free living space. Please contact us.

On February 27th, we set out to pick up family members on the Polish border. Our journey then led us on to Hungary, where we could embrace further family members on March 1st. On March 3rd, we then all arrived in Frankfurt. On March 5th, our “office” took up its work.

Friends and fellow artists who can not leave the country and need help urgently and have so far received a donation from us.

Mein Name ist Oksana, und der Name meines Mannes ist Dmitry, und unsere beiden Hunde sind Adam und Isa. Wir sind eine junge Familie aus Kiew, der Hauptstadt der Ukraine. Ich arbeite in einem kleinen Studio als Custom Leather Product Maker. Dmitry arbeitet als Monteur an der Produktionslinie von Geräten für die Haussicherheit.
Wir lieben es, abends Gerichte aus verschiedenen Kulturen zu kochen, bevor wir am Wochenende gute Filme und aktive Familienferien im Park erleben.
Aber alles hat sich geändert…
In der Nacht des 24. Februar wurden wir von Explosionen und heulenden Sirenen geweckt. Die Besatzer drangen in das Territorium unseres Landes ein und begannen, Raketenangriffe auf die großen Städte unseres geliebten Landes durchzuführen. Schock, Panik, Angst!
Unser Leben hat sich bis zur Unkenntlichkeit verändert. Tage werden durch militärische Aktionen gemessen, Stunden durch Unterkünfte und Minuten auf der Suche nach Nahrung und Frieden.
Ich habe Asthma bronchiale und benötige Medikamente. Unter den Bedingungen der Feindseligkeiten in der Stadt, in der Schlange der Apotheke zu stehen, wurde für uns zu einer schwierigen Prüfung.
Unsere Kochabende wurden zu einer eiligen Zubereitung von einfachen Speisen zwischen den Sirenen. Und endlose Neuigkeiten ersetzten uns das Anschauen von Filmen.
Wir sind in Kiew geblieben, wir lieben unser Land, wir werden überleben und nirgendwo hingehen. Das ist unsere Heimat und unser Land! Danke an jeden von euch, dass ihr unser Land und uns in diesem Kampf unterstützt!
Wir glauben, dass unser Land und wir alle bald diesen Faschismus und den Völkermord an unserem Volk besiegen werden. Und wir werden unser altes Leben mit unseren üblichen Sorgen und angenehmen Spaziergängen im Park mit unseren Haustieren leben.
