At the beginning it was difficult, but now they adapt and socialize more and more easily
Inna, her five daughters and her husband leave Ukraine because of the martial law.
At first they go to Moldova, but their friends – our compatriots, contact them and offer them to come here. So the family decided to continue their journey and set off for Bulgaria.
The difficulties they encounter after their arrival are related to finding accommodation and the documents needed for the children’s school. They found out about the support of Caritas from their acquaintances and contacted the Center “St. Anna” in Sofia. They are extremely grateful for the prompt receipt of information and support.
Our social workers assisted the family and soon the 5 children were enrolled and attending a Bulgarian school. Our courses for children, which prospective students attend before the new academic year, also help to master the language. Parents are also trained in our Bulgarian courses. They also receive financial assistance for rent for a period of 3 months after meeting certain criteria.
They share that at the beginning it was difficult, but now they adapt and socialize more and more easily. They like Bulgaria and feel good here, but they want to go home to their relatives who are there.
