and her call for medicine
Before 24 February, I was working as a tour guide in Lviv. But my life has changed, as the lives of millions of Ukrainians. I grew up in a small town Valky in the Kharkiv region and my parents and many of my friends are still there. A friend of mine created a volunteering centre in my hometown. And I started to help him. Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, I collected about 305,600 UAH or approximately €/$8,300 for charity. Altogether we collected UAH 142,878 (€/$3900) for medicines.
We also bought primary products and Easter bread for grocery sets, which were distributed in the Valky community in the Kharkiv region before Easter.
I am still telling people about Ukraine and its culture online in Zoom. “Cultural journey around Ukraine” is the name of my online lecture. 141 times or 141 hours, I spoke about Ukraine in English to people and companies from different parts of our planet. I am glad that employees of Google, Airbnb, Pinterest, Amazon Studios, Salesforce, Pfizer, Cisco, ING bank, Sandvik, and other great companies know more about our country and culture now.
In support of Anna (one of our virtual hosts) and the Ukraine, #ALI2022 will be donating a percentage of revenue to Anna’s cause.
