Ukrainian refugees got robbed!

Donation protected
My husband and I fled the war in Ukraine, and found refuge in Ireland. Up until last night, Ireland has been nothing but good to us, for almost two weeks. From the Garda officers who welcomed us in Dublin's port, to the workers in the shielding center, and every Irish person we have met, we were overwhelmed by their kindness and support.

Last night, however, we were victims of a crime that took us by surprise. Someone broke into our car in the underground parking lot of the shielding center. He took most of our belongings, which was all we could carry when we left Kyiv under the sounds of bombings. And whatever he left has blood all over it! (Apparently, he cut his hand while breaking the window).

Two very kind police officers came to check the car and take some information this morning, and told us that, unfortunately, unless our insurance would cover the losses, there's no way we can get compensated. Our insurance wouldn't cover that though, as it's impossible to even reach them now.

Therefore, we thought about taking matters into our hands by putting our story on GoFundMe, to see if people would be kind enough to help us with fixing the car (the rear window is broken) and buying what we lost (clothes, shoes, laptop, tablet...).

We appreciate any help. Much love and respect!
