Good afternoon. My name is Georgy Faorov, I am fifty years old. I don't know if I could have turned to strangers for help before, probably not. All my life I have tried to help others. I never thought I would have to ask for help myself. My family is in urgent need of financial help.
We live in Ukraine, we are from the town of Pervomaisk in Lugansk region, where we lived until the summer of 2014, but in the summer of 2014 war broke out, the town was subjected to heavy shelling, we had to flee almost without any property. So in the summer of 2014, we found ourselves without possessions and means of livelihood - me, my wife, our two daughters (one a ten-year-old schoolgirl and the other an eighteen-year-old student), my wife's mother, and two dogs, which we consider members of our family, and we took them out under shelling. Somehow we found a place to live, and then we found a job, although with a small salary. Somehow we settled in. But in 2020, disaster struck. My wife was diagnosed with cancer and had an urgent operation and rehabilitation course. It seems to have won, but unfortunately in 2021 there was a relapse, the treatment is very expensive, the money is catastrophically short, took loans from who could, plus loans from banks.
At present my wife is undergoing radiotherapy (10 procedures), what will be the next treatment, is still unknown.
My wife's mother, our grandmother, who is seventy-six, lives with us. Before the war she was a very active and confident elderly woman. But the war broke her. She began to suffer from depression, which eventually turned into dementia. Medication and care are also needed to maintain her health.
Also there is a very serious crisis in Ukraine today and there is the pandemic COVID 19, there is virtually no work, and the salary of 300 dollars, a pension of about 100 dollars, not enough even for the minimum running costs. There is no way to pay debts and at least the interest on loans. I found myself in such a dead-end, and I just do not see any way out of it on my own.
I ask all concerned people who have the opportunity to help financially.
