Everyone now has their own war and their own front. Some are on the front line, and some are on the home front, ensuring the guys on the front line know they're not alone. And everyone has their own goal.
Our friend Alexander (Sasha) achieved his goal after 5 years - to start his own bakery. He was fond of baking for a long time, studied recipes, attended baking courses, and baked a huge amount of bread. But February 24, 2022, ruined all of his plans. Within 10 days of the start of the war, Sasha opened his own bakery, a volunteer's bakery. At first, the project was financed by Sasha's family - his parents, his sister and her husband. Then friends and regular, caring people joined in.
Enough people are willing to work at his bakery. At first, a team of 18 volunteers was formed. None of them knew how to bake bread, but Sasha taught them. As in the beginning, the bakery works in two shifts, and everyone contributes. The team brought together people of different professions, united by the idea of working to win. Not everyone can work on a volunteer basis, so Sasha decided to pay a small salary to the bakery staff.
During the war's first three months, the bakery baked 8 tons of bread. Just think about that number! 8 tons!!! Bread is delivered for free to hospitals, volunteer centers, territorial defense units and three front lines: Kharkiv, Izyum and Donbas. All costs are self-funded, but money is running out.
Without sufficient funding, the Volunteer's Bakery will have to reduce the baking volume. But the bakery will not stop working while there is active military action in Ukraine. This war is crucial for us in a historical sense, and we must make every effort to win.
