Olya cooks food and shelters people in Kyiv

“On February 24, I woke up to non-stop phone calls and messages saying ‘the war has begun.’ I live in an apartment above my cafe. I immediately called my mother, co-workers, friends and insisted that everyone should come to me. I made a decision for myself: I would not go anywhere, I would stay here and do everything I can.

During these days, 45 people have gathered in our shelter, 10 of them are children, also there are 8 dogs and 5 cats. Residents ages range from 2 to 68. My mother makes homemade food all the time, it adds a lot of comfort and lifts the general spirit.”
