Elena Report-Nikopol, Ukraine

This is Ludmila. Last year, she went to her dacha, or cabin, to work in the garden. She said, “I didn’t want to go there that day because I was so tired, but I went anyway. When I came back from my dacha, I saw that all of the windows in my apartment were broken from a shell. There were so many pieces of glass and metal stuck in my walls. I just keep giving things to God that I wasn’t home at that moment.”
