Dear volunteers and followers of our UAC mission to help orphans and refugees in Ukraine!
We are pleased to inform you that we have accepted a new student into the UAC scholarship program to help children of Ukraine. Please, meet this Denis. He was born in the city of Luhansk, which has been occupied by Russian hybrid troops Denis since March 1, 2014.
He is the second child in the family, besides him there are older and younger sisters. The younger sister has a disability, is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, she moves in a wheelchair. The elder sister is visually impaired.
According to the boy, he does not know his father; he lives with his mother in a social center for refugees from Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Denis's mom is visually impaired and brings up three children alone, she has a very hard time, thanks to the program to support refugees from the occupied territories of Ukraine, she receives the necessary medicines and some food.
Previously, the family lived in the Luhansk region, the village of Georgievka, Lutuginsky district, Denis studied at a rural school, in 2014, due to hostilities, Denis and his sisters moved to Odessa.
These children learned the horrors of war very early, the whole family lived for three months in the basement of the house because of the daily shelling of the village. They hid a lot in the basement and in the house, but still one mine hit the playground due to the proximity of the Luhansk airport.
Now they live in Odessa, not in the best conditions, but thank God, far from the war. Here Denis finished the 9th grade of the Odessa secondary school. And in 2021 he entered the Odessa Professional Lyceum of Maritime Transport as an electric and gas welder, a handicraft blacksmith. Studying at the expense of the budget.
Denis has a hobby - repairing bicycles, riding a bike of a certain Bmx brand, doing different tricks, running an Instagram channel where he shows the performance of tricks. He is always ready to help his mother, knows how to cook and help with the housework
His favorite subject at the Lyceum is his specialty. He is very fond of studying, and has made friends with many students. Denis dreams of going sailing on a steamer. For this, he is going to take additional English lessons, as this skill will help him in his future work at sea.
He is very grateful that he was accepted into the UAC scholarship program and pledged to fulfill all the conditions of the program, namely to study well and get a profession.
