Appeal for help from Ukrainian families caring for persons with intellectual disabilities
Inclusion Europe organised a call with Raisa Kravchenko and Yulia Klepets form the VGO Coalition (All-Ukrainian NGO Coalition for Persons with Intellectual Disability, email@example.com). They shared with us and our members their plea for help and described the situation of families who are unable to leave Ukraine during the Russian attack.
01:30 - The war came to every Ukrainian home
2:00 - I have a seven year old son, whose group home (support) stopped, and now he's with me and it takes all my time to cope with his behavioural difficulties.
3:30 - We are exhausted
4:20 - The pills, the medicines will stop. And so we really badly need your help.
6:40 - I was standing three hours in line to get a 3000 is maybe a 60 Euro.
7:00 - We need to take families to the safer places.
8:30 - We would appreciate highly family to family support.
10:10 - We have a bank account in the bank, which failed, punished because the bank belongs to Russia and they are all under the sanctions
12:00 - This war is not against Ukraine solely, it is the war against civilisation
12:50 - If Ukraine becomes in these days, the members of the European union, it means that, the aggressor knows very clearly, that there is no way to Soviet Union.
13:40 - We would appreciate highly if you could call your countries, call your governments to support Ukraine in these two ways closed sky and joining European union on the simplified procedure
15:10 - There are families who live in the bathrooms because the military said that the bathrooms are the safest places in the flats.
15:40 - all bridges are locked and broken, and the leaving points are blocked. So, it is difficult to leave at all, taking into consideration that Kyiv is a city of 3 million people. It’s so difficult to leave.
16:20 - if you are a wheelchair person, you have a special sign on your car. And yesterday such a car was being shot. Somebody killed them, all because of the sign of the disability on the car.
18:40 - We have information war as well.
