Weʼre raising £5,000 to purchase a used 7-seater vehicle for Ukrainian refugees family to get affordable transportation

by Olena Onufriieva in Isle of Lewis, Scotland, United Kingdom

Hi everyone!

My name is Olena. We are Ukrainian refugees who were forced to flee our homeland after the Russian invasion. After a harrowing journey, we found safe haven on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

Our family's daily struggle just to get to nursery and back is completely exhausting.

While we are immensely grateful to have escaped the horrors of war, our new life here has major challenges. We spent all our savings to leave Ukraine and safely get here. We don't have our own vehicle, which makes the simple task of getting my young children to and from nursery an odyssey.

Every day, we have to take four different buses. The journey there and back totals over 2 hours of travel time. My kids are exhausted before we even arrive, and I'm a wreck by the time we get home after keeping my little ones content on a marathon bus ride.

A car would transform our lives. We could simply buckle everyone in and get to nursery quickly and easily.

I'm raising money to purchase a used 7-seater vehicle so my family can handle this everyday essential travel with dignity. Please donate whatever you can to help this refugee family get affordable transportation. Even a small amount moves us closer to our £5,000 goal and an easier life here.

Thank you everyone for every penny!!!
