Voices of older Ukrainians.
HelpAge is supporting older people, people with disabilities, and their families impacted by the war in Ukraine. Here are some of their stories.
Taking refuge in Moldova
Valentina, 72, is originally from Kherson, Ukraine. She has fled the crisis in Ukraine and has taken refuge in Chisinau, Moldova. It took her and her family members more than 12 hours to get there. By the time she had arrived in Chisinau, Valentina, who is diabetic, had run out of insulin. She hopes to return to Ukraine at some point but understands that she will be displaced for the time being.
HelpAge USA is raising money for our Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal to support our work for older people affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
