Kherson 11.11.22

πŸ‰πŸ‰ Kherson is liberated!!! πŸ‰πŸ‰

Thank you so much all for every bit of support you have given to us and to the people of Kherson!
Every single cent and penny you have given has helped to lead to this. Every time you thought, read, talked about and donated to people in Kherson, you have helped them to live through these last nine months, when they wouldn’t have survived without it. The occupation has been horrific, but it was a little less horrific because you helped.

What happens next?

So for the time-being we’re going to continue sending food and money to the vulnerable people there who need it. The battle is won but the war isn’t over. Please keep donating, to us and to other trustworthy organisations helping people in Ukraine.

Another very positive change is that we should now be able to work without fearing for the safety of our volunteers and the people receiving help. The situation in Kherson was becoming more and more brutal over the past months and volunteers were being hunted and stopped. We did everything we could to minimise the visibility of both those giving and receiving help. We are really happy that we can now be open about the work our volunteers are doing.

The occupation of Kherson and the west bank of the Dnieper is over. The majority of the people we’re supporting are here. It’s a huge relief, but the damage that’s been done to people there won’t be fixed overnight. At the moment, because of the amount of mines around the city, the Ukrainian government is officially warning people against attempting to enter or leave.
There are a number of things which people believe are likely to happen next for the city, some are optimistic and some not, but in every case life in Kherson will continue to be hard for the ordinary people there. We’ll keep doing all we can!

P.S. continuing to blur faces for the moment before we make sure of where everyone is – the connectivity in Kherson Region was almost entirely blocked for the past week, but we were still able to send money for food – but hopefully soon this can stop!
