The war has affected everyone, including our own staff. Our area manager in Eastern Ukraine, fled her home to seek refuge in Lviv, over 900 miles away. She tells us how she’s coping.
Facing turmoil once again
“It’s very difficult to change our life again. In 2014 we had to move but we were close enough to return home sometimes. Now it’s a very difficult situation and we don’t know how long it will be for.”
Impact on staff and mental health – toll of the last 7 years
Continuing to work despite it all
How she copes
“We live for one day. Maybe something will change tomorrow. Next week may be a new reality, so I must be flexible. It doesn’t feel real. I feel bad but I must be an example to my staff and continue to help older people.”
