Make a Difference This Father's Day

How will you be spending Father’s Day this year? For many of us, we’re looking forward to family gatherings and celebrating together with the people we love.  

But for families fleeing the war in Ukraine, this Father’s Day will not necessarily be one of celebration.  Many families are now separated, with mothers and children having left their husbands, partners and parents behind.  

Like 27-year-old Katerina, whose father brought his family to safety then had to return to Ukraine.  

“My father drove my family to Poland and left us here. He is in the military and now he is helping save our motherland. The situation in Kiev is not good and my father left to go to a village.”

“ I can’t believe what has happened. I can’t believe this is happening.”

Most male citizens between 18 and 60 are not allowed to leave the country, as they may be needed to serve. And fathers who are able to leave face days or months of uncertainty, fearing for the well-being of their children.

Timur, 15 had to leave his father and friends in Vinnytsia, Ukraine

Children like Timur, 15 who is now living in Moldova with his mother, grandmother, and cousin and had to leave his father in Ukraine. Although settling into his new life, Timur mourns the life he left behind. “I miss my friends because I really loved those people. And I miss my father, because he is also in Vinnytsia. And I miss Ukrainian people.”  

Timur tells us that he is doing his best to take care of his mother. “I support her morally. And if she needs it, I can give her money, because I have some savings from my job.”
