POLAND – Can you imagine what it must feel like to flee a war-zone with your 3 small children? What if you had to do that while being 8 months pregnant? For Olena and her 3 kids, this nightmare was a reality.
Olena was forced to flee her home in Ukraine. When she looked out her window one morning and saw bombs flying through the sky, she couldn’t believe her eyes. “It’s one thing to hear about this,” Olena said, “another thing when you see it with your own eyes.” As a protective mother, she decided the only way to keep her children safe was to leave the country.
“It’s one thing to hear about this, another thing when you see it with your own eyes.”

As soon as Olena was able, she boarded a train and arrived safely in Poland. Once there, she was greeted by local churches and a team from Operation Blessing.
