We would like to express our gratitude to the “Good on the Amur” fund for their assistance to our great friend, volunteer Askold Kvyatkovsky from Mariupol, who has done a lot for the residents of this city and Ukrainians in general during the war.

The war has drastically changed his life – a well-known artist, host, and master of ceremonies in Mariupol has become a chaplain-volunteer, who organized the evacuation of more than 7,000 residents of Mariupol, saving them from bullets and rockets of the Russian occupiers. And he continues to do so, evacuating people from different regions of Ukraine under shelling, risking his own life.

“Every saved soul is like a thread that connects you with the light, with love, with God! And it gives meaning to the madness that is happening around and to the world, which has lost its mind… Everything falls into place, and life is beautiful if, despite everything, you choose love!” says Askold.

He often visits our shelter, bringing food, hygiene kits for the resettled people, congratulating them on holidays, giving gifts, and hosting festive events with the participation of artists and animators. We are always happy to see him – wherever he is, there is always a lot of energy, joy, fun, and life.

As long as there are people like you, Askold, in Ukraine, it is invincible. We extend our heartfelt thanks to you from all Ukrainians for who you are, for the lives and souls you have saved.
