Stories From the War in Ukraine


‘My husband and I barely got out, thank God we survived.’

Nadiya’s home burnt down and all her possessions were destroyed when they were hit by shelling. They now live with strangers. ShelterBox aid, like mattresses, blankets and hygiene kits, offer them some comfort.


Irina, her husband and their 11 month old daughter stand in the rubble of their home. The family fled from bombing just before their home was destroyed.

They’re using a ShelterBox tarpaulin and rope on the roof to protect what’s left of their home until they are able to come back and repair it.

“The tarp is useful from the rain, so the house will not flood. We will also use it to cover the roof temporarily,”


The top floor and roof of Dymtro’s apartment block were badly damaged after a missile attack in March.

ShelterBox and our partner ReliefAid are the only organisations that have helped the community here.

They have worked together, using ShelterBox aid to clear the debris, repair windows and the roof.

‘I want peace in our land, I want there to be no war, because I don’t want anyone to endure this’.

Angela’s home was hit by a mortar. It took her family a week to sort out the rubble, debris and broken items, but with ShelterBox’s support she has been able to cover the roof and seal the windows.
