Solomiia – Saving Lives in Ukraine
When families began arriving in Solomiia’s city in western Ukraine, they had few belongings and bore the trauma of witnessing and fleeing war.
Solomiia, and the activists she works with at the Legal Development Network, began working around the clock to give them food, shelter, and mental health support. Today, children are attending class and their parents are applying for jobs.
She is a local hero, giving hundreds of children and families safety, community, and the chance to rebuild their lives. As winter approaches and war wages on, heroes like Solomiia need funds to buy heaters and prepare for new arrivals.
