But in those days, the first wave of solidarity took place that prompted people from all over the world to send aid to Kiev. Among them, too Veronikaa Ukrainian-born lady living in Australia who called on the phone offering help to all her friends, including Victoria’s grandmother.

The trip was organized in a few hours.
