My name is Vlad De Briansky. I am a musician, guitarist, composer and engineer. My wife and I were born and raised Ukraine. But my home for all my adult life was the USA. For the last 8 years I lived in Kyiv, Ukraine where I opened a music school, bringing jazz and blues studies to the local kids.
As you know Russia had invaded Ukraine. Unfortunately our school was bombed with all our equipment there. Russian rocket bombed civilian areas, people were forced to hide and leave everything behind. And there is over a million Ukrainian women and children are fleeing the country with no money and nowhere to go. Many people from European countries offered shelter and food, however many Ukrainians don’t have even money to get a ticket in Europe or buy their own food or medicine by leaving everything behind escaping the bombs.
My wife and I have helped several people to cross to Poland and we have found some families who offered shelter, food and clothes.
But there are many remaining on the border. Many are stuck in small towns in Ukraine without a way out. Many children have lost their families. Many women lost their husbands.
Many people we know and have asked us in emails offering food and shelter and are waiting for the refugees in Czech Republic, Switzerland, the UK, Ireland, and Canada. But they can’t afford getting there. Many women don’t speak other languages, and they need food, medicine. We want to help them.
Please help us raise the funds to buy them tickets, food, and temporary shelter.
Please help us.
