Ukrainian Family in Desperate Need

Ukrainian Family in Desperate Need
My name is Steven, from Washington DC. Since Ukraine was invaded over a year ago, I've looked for ways to help the innocent Ukrainian victims of the conflict, and in the process, have gotten to know Yana, who lives with her husband and two little daughters in Odessa. Yana is struggling desperately to survive, trying to feed her children and pay utilities on less than $8 a day, as her husband lost his job as an I.T. specialist when Russia invaded, and Yana's Etsy craft site does not bring in nearly enough to survive. Food prices have more than tripled since the invasion, and to make matters worse, her daughters have medical conditions and allergies they need to be treated for, but there is no money left for doctor visits, or to purchase life-giving medicine. As Russia continues to take the war to the civilian populace, they regularly bomb the power plants, depriving Yana's family of electricity, for hours, sometimes days, at a time. It is an intolerable situation for all. I send as much money as I can and send packages of basic necessities of life, but they need so much more. Please join me in helping to save this family. There are many who suffer, of course, and we can't change the world, but in pooling our resources, we can make a tremendous difference in one young family's lives.
