Nadiia: ‘I stand up for the right to social security’  

Nadiia works as a Project Manager for Dorcas Ukraine  

Nadiia: ‘The first thing we Ukrainians lost two years ago when the conflict started, was our sense of security. It does not matter how much money you have, you are still at risk. The most vulnerable people are children, older people, families who left the occupied territories and people with disabilities.’ 

‘I work with older people in Eastern Ukraine. It was during the conflict that a lot of them became very lonely because they were left behind by their relatives. That is why the aim of my work is to develop Community Safety Nets for older people. This is where they can support each other, communicate, develop their skills, hear encouraging words from volunteers and learn that they are not forgotten.’ 

‘By taking part in various activities, older people forget about the fear and danger, and they feel heard and valued! We all hope that the conflict will end and that we will feel safe in our homeland.’
