Help Rebuild Mariupol’s Old-Age Home: A Plea for Humanity

Dear Listeners:

Mariupol, once a bustling city brimming with the chatter of its residents and the vibrancy of urban life, has recently faced the devastating impact of the war in Ukraine. The reverberations of conflict have touched every corner of our city, affecting both its infrastructure and the souls who call it home. Amidst this desolation, our beacon of hope and resilience, the Old-Age Home in Mariupol, has endured tremendous damage.

This old-age home, a haven for our senior citizens, has been accommodating approximately 600 elderly individuals. It has been more than just a shelter; it has been a home where our grandparents and parents found companionship, care, and the comfort of shared memories. It has been a place where they celebrated the golden years of their lives, feeling safe and cared for. But now, the very foundation of this sanctuary is at risk.

The war didn’t discriminate. The walls that echoed with laughter and stories of yesteryears now bear the scars of conflict. The rooms that once provided warmth and shelter are in dire need of repair. More urgently, with winter rapidly approaching, our residents are facing severe shortages of essentials. 

We are in dire need of funds for:

  • Medicine:   The elderly are vulnerable, with many requiring daily medication to manage chronic conditions. The war has disrupted our supply chain, leaving our stocks nearly depleted.
  • Food:   While our staff are doing their utmost to provide meals, the reality is that our supplies are dwindling, and nourishing 600 souls is becoming an increasingly daunting task.
  • Winter Wear:   Mariupol’s winter is unforgiving, with temperatures often dropping below freezing. Our residents urgently need warm clothing, blankets, and heating arrangements to withstand the harsh season.
  • Other Essentials:   From personal hygiene products to basic amenities, the needs are many, and our resources are stretched thin.

We understand that the world is vast, and there are countless causes deserving of support. But today, we come to you with a plea that is both urgent and heart-rending. The elderly of our community, those who have given their best years to building a brighter future for the generations that followed, are in dire need of your help.

Every donation, no matter how big or small, can make a significant difference. It can mean a warm meal for a starving senior, a blanket for someone shivering in the cold, or life-saving medication for those on the brink of despair.

Time is of the essence. With each passing day, as winter draws closer, our challenges multiply. Our city has endured so much, and its people, especially our senior residents, are relying on the kindness and generosity of souls like yours to rebuild and recuperate.

Let’s come together and rebuild Mariupol’s Old-Age Home, not just as a structure, but as a testament to human resilience, unity, and compassion. Let’s show our elderly that even in the face of adversity, humanity will always find a way to lend a helping hand.

In these trying times, your support can be a ray of hope. It can bring warmth to cold nights, a smile to despairing faces, and most importantly, reaffirm our collective faith in humanity.

Please consider contributing to our cause. Together, we can ensure that the twilight years of our seniors are spent in comfort, safety, and dignity.

From the depths of our hearts, we thank you for your time and consideration. Every act of kindness, no matter how small, ripples through the universe, creating waves of change. Let’s create those waves together.
