STORIES OF MOTHERS
Irina used to work in Chernihiv, a city in northern Ukraine, in the clerk's office at the Court of Law for a judge who was shot dead in front of her eyes.
She decided to leave her home and flee with her 4 children and husband in search of a safe place.
Today Irina is taking Italian culture and language courses, assisted by psychological support and ABF’s multidisciplinary team. Her children regularly attend classes at the “E. De Amicis” School Complex in Muccia, after undergoing a 3-week workshop-based educational pathway of acclimatization and socialization.
“We are grateful that we’ve arrived in Muccia.
They put a roof over our heads, gave us food and gave our children the opportunity to attend school from the very beginning”.
Julia left her mother, husband and nephews in Dnipro.
“In Krakow, the coordinator informed us that we had the option of fleeing to Italy. We made the decision in less than 10 minutes, with the hope that we would be in good hands. And that’s what happened. They warmly welcomed us with great humanity here in Muccia.
Today Muccia has become a second home for us.”
Tatiana escaped from Dnipro.
“I left everything. Absolutely everything. My family, friends, my home, my life. I arrived in Muccia with my daughter. The people here have been very welcoming”.
