Supporting Ukrainians With Disabilities
“We are still happy.” In spite of the war ravaging her country, Tetiana Dubyna, director of the House of Mercy in Chortkiv, Ukraine, is holding fast to insure that her countrymen receive the help they need.
Before the war started, the Chortkiv House of Mercy was a center for children with special needs, founded by the Eparchy of Buchach, that was home to 80 local children.
Following the Russian invasion however, director Tetiana Dubyna realized that the center needed to adapt to address the needs of Ukraine. After evacuating the children to Italy and Poland, the House of Mercy started welcoming internally displaced Ukrainians, particularly those with disabilities who were left with nowhere to go.
