Donetsk Region, Debaltseve
Anya survived all armed hostilities in Debaltsevo. The school she went to was destroyed, and Anna and other students studied from home until spring. The low-income family had no chance to take the child away from the war, not even for a little while. Anya is very kind, friendly, emotional and talented. She came to Artek with hopes for a new life.
Anya Bondarenko: “We had a lot of fun here, thanks to everyone who organized this event! In Artek, we studied in the cinema team: we shot our own movies, held castings and helped select actors. We had surprises every day: we saw magnificent palaces, such as Livadia and Massandra, went on an excursion to Sevastopol and visited the Artek Navy and History museums. I made friends with the entire team and now I know how cool it is to be in Artek!”
The permit for a free stay at Artek was given by the Korsun Charity Foundation, which supports social projects.
