Personal Story

When I was 16 my parents and only brother were killed in a car accident. I watched my mother die in the hospital. When I was 22 I was shot in the shoulder. Then, someone broke my windows and set fire to my door. I became so anxious and depressed that I quit my job at the university. My girlfriend proposed I contact her friend who would help me leave Ukraine.

Personal Story

I am 13 years old. Before I left Romania, I was living at an orphanage since the age of seven. My mother was on her third marriage. She didn't want me to live with her and her husband. What I want the most is to live with my mother. This is one of the reasons why I left the orphanage in the first place. Then, I went with my friend on a tourist trip to Yugoslavia.
