Mariupol residents aged 0-14 receive shoes, gloves and tracksuits at “I’Mariupol” centers. This care project was launched by Mayor Vadym Boichenko with the support of Pavlo Kyrylenko, head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration.
“It is important for us to support Mariupol residents in this difficult time. Especially the children. Most of them left the blockaded city without their belongings. That is why we decided to launch this project. I thank our partners for their support,” Mayor Vadym Boichenko said.
One of the recipients is Maksym from Zaporizhzhia. The boy immediately tried on his brand new suit and shared his impressions of the new clothes:
“I like it very much. It’s comfortable and warm, and it’s great for running, playing, and just walking around in.”
Girls Ania and Alona were also happy to try on the new clothes.
“We like our new clothes so much. They are very warm and bright”, Ania said.
Polina Semenova received clothes for her two-year-old son Maxym at the center in Khmelnytskyi.
“The clothes are warm and of high quality, and most importantly, they are very much needed now. After all, we left Mariupol with almost nothing. Thank you!” Polina Semenova said.
13-year-old Svitlana Ksenofontova picked up her kit in Lviv. The girl said she was especially pleased with the tracksuit – it was very comfortable.
Little Egor Zvieriev was also happy to have new clothes. He and his mother Yuliia came to the centre in Kyiv to receive a kit. The boy’s mother noted the quality of the clothes and shoes: “Free and of high quality. Such support gives strength and faith.”
