This is my second war. Back in 2014 I had to leave my destroyed hometown Donetsk.
I am now in Portugal, my family and friends are in Ukraine. My family can’t leave, because their city Irpen is blocked - bridges and roads are destroyed. By brother can’t get insulin from Kiev, which is 20 km away.
I am scared. And heartbroken. I can’t believe this is happening.
The first day of the war, I was jus crying and shaking.
Then I started acting. Together with dozens of bright kind people we are organizing lodging, paperwork, jobs, transportation, medical and psychological support. For the refugees.
Many of you want to send money, but don't want to send to global fundraisers - to all army, all Ukrainian kids…
You ask me how you can help particular families. It's a good question. Yesterday I collected several donations and redirected to one family I know. It took too much time.
But if I have this transparent fundraiser - I can give my time into sending help to the families I trust and know.
You are welcome to send money to help real Ukrainian families. I will post the updates here and on my insta.
Let’s be strong, Katya

Hi from the Ukrainian borderUpdate posted by Kateryna Shepeliuk at 08:46 am
Hi guys, the last several days I am in poland, at the frontier. I can’t say how many days as my brain stopped registering time. I just exist in some strange mode, where I just have to take care of these scared lost people. And because they are somehow proximate. . . . .

Tomorrow I go to Lisbon and on Sunday my dad and I go to Warsaw, there we find a car and go to the border pick up ours … I hope they make it here

Hey great people, I don’t see your emails so I can’t contact you personally.,. Thanks for your money!🥺♥️I will send them to the people who are trying to reach the border, and use it myself, if I run out of money. Hugs, Katya
