Our team does not just work, but REALLY WORKS. This is all of us and all of our “Spilna sprava”
Tatyana Trushina, in June 2014, having moved to the city of Vinnitsa, to her husband’s homeland, rather than fled from the war, she went to visit relatives. But, over time, it turned out that there was nowhere to return. Tatyana lives in a new city with her whole big and friendly family — with her husband, daughter, son-in-law and with two wonderful grandchildren. Before the war, she carried out activities far from public, namely, she held the position of head of supply in the Mine Construction Department. Upon retirement, upon arrival in Vinnitsa, Tatyana Trushina, bored by the routine and dullness of the weekdays, took up a completely new business for her — she became a volunteer in the public organization OP «Spilna sprava.» How was her first acquaintance with the organization and much more, further in the material.
Acquaintance and work in the public organization OP «Spіlna sprava «
Tatyana Trushina: “Honestly, I was very far from the public sector, and I knew that such an organization exists only thanks to my friends. At first, I doubted whether I needed it, but in the end I decided to go and see with my own eyes what I was told about. The impetus was most likely melancholy. You know, in retirement, and even in the new city, there are not so many friends and entertainments. In most cases, there was no one to even talk to. Our acquaintance took place gradually, I sometimes came, was engaged in the issuance of humanitarian aid, and now, many of us, except for the public association “Spilna sprava,” have nothing in our everyday life. ”
“We are not volunteering … We are working”
“We already go to work, although we are volunteers. There are five of us working in the humanitarian aid warehouse — myself, Natalya Gayokha (IDP from Krasnodon), Lidia Smyk (IDP from Lugansk), Svetlana Novikova (IDP from Donetsk) and Valentina Goncharuk (a local resident of Vinnitsa). Girls work three days a week, and if you need to come at ten in the morning, you can be sure that at five minutes to ten, they will be right there. Although, we do not receive money for this. Simply, they are very responsible. If someone gets sick or for some other reason cannot come to work today, they call, agree among themselves, replace each other, if they would get a salary. And this, of course, gives reason for pride. “
“We work with not only IDPs, but also serve large and low-income families. For a year and a half, we served three thousand people, I think this is already talking about something.”
