Help Misha's family escape War Zone in Ukraine


raised of a $2,000 goal

Long time friend of the association, Misha’s world shattered when Russia attacked a nearby military base in the east to what at the time was seen as the relative safety of western Ukraine. This pushed his sister, Galya, to start a harrowing cross-country journey from her home. She is traveling with her daughter-in-law and two young grandchildren.

Misha’s displaced family is now in Germany and, as other Refugees from Ukraine, they are expecting to settle in gyms, ware houses, etc. As they will need to find a place to stay or continue their journey, and as their funds are limited, we decided to use our platform to send their way some support.

Thank you.

Update 03/25

Misha’s sister Galya, her daughter-in-law and grandkids are in Aachen, Germany.  Staying at a hotel, they are now seeking an official refugee status, they have to go through many bureaucratic procedures, wait in long lines, go from cabinet to cabinet, etc. 

His other sister Sveta , her husband and three grandchildren stayed in the village in Zaporizhzhya region. Currently the area is occupied by the Russians. They had no power for almost two weeks. The last time Misha briefly talked with Sveta (she manages to catch a signal at a certain place on a hill from time to time), she said that their food supply should last for about a month. As of now they can’t go anywhere, can’t buy anything.  Her daughter Alla and her son-in-law who stayed in besieged Mariupol are still missing. We don’t know whether they are alive or dead, or whether they were taken to Russia.
