Our dear friend Alex passed away on the 30th of March. As you know, he spent over 20 years in Ireland, where he found his second home. His heart, however, remained in Ukraine, and that's why he chose to go back... to protect his country and its people.
When Alex arrived in Warsaw, he gave everything he had at the time to those in need (women and children). When he arrived at the military unit, he kept positive and did his best to calm his worrying family and friends by joking and sending funny pictures... We all will miss his kindness and cracking sense of humor, even in the most challenging situations.
This fundraiser aims to try and help his family, who are now away from home, mostly displaced, and devastated. They will not be able to attend his funerals in his hometown Ohtyrka. Still, we want to ensure his family can give Alex the memorial he deserves to honor his memory and say their last goodbyes. (Small correction as of 8th of April, at the time of writing I was in contact with only one of his daughters. He still have immediate family in Ohtyrka, but none of his daughters could have come for the funerals).
Any donation no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.
As per Gofund rules, I have to state the following to speed up the process:
I am Anna Neilande, money will be sent to Alex's immediate family to help them to cover funerals, and memorial and help them financially.
