I am Marina Bluvshtein. I am an Adlerian psychologist in the USA.
The photo you see here was taken by me in Ukraine in 2019. That night was peaceful. Not anymore.
After consulting with our Ukrainian Adlerian colleagues, I have set up this GoFundMe account to help with their immediate and emerging needs in helping individuals and families affected by the war. The needs are medical supplies and medications, blankets, children's books, food, and more. Many of our Ukrainian colleagues are now working with refugees and internally displaced people. They also work with those who stay in their homes and at work during the day and spend nights in metro stations, underground parking, and basements. They read books to children. They feed hungry. They give hope to all even when things feel utterly hopeless. Our colleagues are there on a front line doing what none of us could ever be prepared to do - while losing their own homes and their own relatives.
The Ukrainian Association of Individual Psychology (UAIP) asked me to be collecting funds to support their work. Then, they will be requesting that I send various amounts to specific groups or individuals associated with the UAIP, who would be making purchases of what they need locally.
I will be sending money via WesternUnion or MoneyGram.
