9-year-old Oleksandr’s family; mother, father and son; are originally from Bucha. They were well on their way to building a happy and fulfilling present and a joyful and loving tomorrow for their son until the Russian invaders infiltrated their town. The soldiers came to the family’s home and shot Oleksandr’s father in their yard.
Their lives have changed dramatically since the invasion, though Oleksandr and his mother have managed to survive. They currently live abroad, though they hope to return home to a peaceful and stable environment soon. He is currently studying remotely at a Ukrainian school with a laptop provided by the Children of Heroes Charity Fund. Upon receiving the laptop, Oleksandr quickly began to learn German and programming, while also attending online sessions with a psychologist. The Foundation helped him with warm clothes for the winter and provided him with an opportunity to attend a camp abroad in Spain. Oleksandr now has a love of learning and a better outlook on life, which the Fund has been thrilled to help him with.
