From Donetsk to Dnipro: how social workers-migrants live

They're not afraid of dirt, look at someone else's grief and fight it. They can buy food or medicine, measure blood pressure, cut croutons, change a light bulb, or just listen. Social workers do everything to make the life of the seriously ill easier. This article will talk about their work.

We visited the Karitas Donetsk Charitable Foundation. This organization moved to Dnipro in 2015, so most of its employees are displaced persons. And they work with both migrants and locals: people who cannot take care of themselves, the elderly, or the seriously ill. They desperately need care or help with the household. This is what the charity fund social workers do.

Next, we'll talk about what they face, how they struggle with burnout, and what the fates of their wards are.
