Women with disabilities during the war
This publication is dedicated to all women with disabilities who are fighting bravely during the russian war against Ukraine. We have different faces. Some of us are serving in the army. Others are volunteering and bringing humanitarian aid to those who need it. We help the Armed Forces; seek vital medicines for children with disabilities who remain in the temporarily occupied territories, and provide psychological support to Ukrainians with disabilities. Some girls and women are defending our country on the information front. We publish the truth about the events in Ukraine, reminding that russia is an aggressor. We share our own experience, advise, help and distribute useful resources.
The Partnership worked for several months coordinating the logistics of shipping from Maryland, USA to a safe warehouse in Ukraine.
For some disabled Ukrainian refugees, even making it to the border doesn’t guarantee escape.
