Helping Anastasia live

39273332_1558108397665044_r.jpegAnastasia Kalakay is an extraordinary human being who has devoted her entire life to saving homeless animals from the brutal streets of Ukraine. Over the last two decades she has rehabilitated and found homes for thousands of dogs, cats, birds, and other wildlife. With her own two hands she has built an animal shelter from old burned down building and has opened the first free animal clinic in Ukraine that launched just a few weeks before she started getting sick.

In October 2018,  Anastasia became suddenly very sick, experiencing constant nausea and vomiting. She has lost so much weight she was not able to walk. She has been in and out of hospitals ever since with complications, such as blood clots and possible kidney and liver failure. Recently, her condition took a strong downturn, placing her in ICU, where she currently is staying. Local doctors cannot determine what is causing her organ failure and cannot help her stay alive. She urgently needs to be transferred to a specialized clinic in Kiev or Moscow where specialists will be able to diagnose and treat her condition.

Anastasia is one of the most giving and special human beings I have met in my life. She has helped women rebuild their lives after domestic violence, she has helped young girls find meaning in life through service, she has changed the lives of so many people, including my own, just by being who she is. Please help her now that she needs help the most. The money raised will go to pay for her treatment and stay at the hospital where very good specialists will be finally able to help her live. If you cannot donate, please share this plea with your friends and family.

Blessing and love,
Dasha Dotsenko
