PLEASE HELP PECHYBORTSEV'S FAMILY (click on the picture to watch the video)

Christchurch, Canterbury

We are Irina & Alex and we live in Christchurch, New Zealand with our 2 girls 12 & 7 yo.

Our dream was to meet our relatives in Ukraine this year but Russian invasion took away our dreams and crushed all plans. Currently there is no safe place for our parents to live there and we worry about them daily.

My parents Vira and Anatolii love people, have always been involved in social work. During the war, my mother has been making meals, and my father has been delivering them to people at the border.

My beautiful grandmother Evgenia lives with my parents. This year she turned 90 years old! But you won’t believe it, she still sews and knits without glasses. During the war she has knitted a lot of warm socks for people, giving them away for free. She remembers all the details of World War II, famine and persecution. She could never imagine that she would experience it all over again.

My sister Galina and her husband Andrei have two children, 4 and 8 yo. Unfortunately, children are under enormous stress from the sounds of sirens and gunshots.

My husband's parents, Ihor & Tetiana, are now in Mykolaiv, where every day there are shootings going off. Until recently they were refusing to leave her home and be a refugee.

But every day it becomes more and more frightening, simply impossible to remain safe in their hometown.

We believe in God and we believe in goodness in people. Please help us make our dream of seeing our family safe come true!

Use of funds

We have major problem, it is extremely difficult for us to cover all the costs like flight tickets and living costs for the first wee while until they get accustomed and can find jobs. We will be immensely grateful for any donations, any help we can get.

Thank you!  21 July 2022

Thank you all, and thank YOU personally for your contribution to our family and for each dollar you donated - BIG THANKYOU! The process of getting our family here to New Zealand is going well so far. We are now saving for our family's living costs because we will be fully responsible for those once they are here.

We still far away of our target to get all the money we need but it was a huge help already so far and we hope and pray that everything will go well and even better than we expected.

Thank you very much for your support and generosity!
