— Why did you want to get involved in rebuilding schools? Why is this particular type of help closer to your heart?
— I think it is important to give people who are in the war zone hope and faith. I think our project does just that. There are very complicated processes involved here. Humanitarian aid was needed at first, as an emergency. In addition, sending shipments takes time and requires extra money. And the restoration of schools gives hope for a peaceful life — both for children and parents. Can you imagine, children sit at home, the Internet works irregularly, the light sometimes does not work, they cannot study or communicate normally, parents cannot go to work because they cannot leave their children home alone. God forbid something happens, who will look after them, who will take them to the bomb shelter? At school, on the other hand, children are communicating and learning in conditions close to normal. I think this is very important for children. Then Ukrainians have hope: even if there is the war, it is not a reason to stop developing, not a reason to stop rejoicing. The rebuilding of schools and kindergartens is already showing some growth.
