Mariya's story

Mariya is from Khoost. She works as an accountant for a private company (gas station). She is a widow and lives alone. She lives under difficult circumstances and often faces heavy financial difficulties. Although her living quarters have been in need of repair for a long time, Mariya doesn't have enough money to improve her living conditions. The fact is that the area where she lives has suffered from floods twice in recent years (in 1998 and in 2001). Repairs were performed after these events but the plaster in her living quarters is still peeling off in some places. Mariya needs 18,000 hryvnia to replace her floor, replaster her walls and perform additional repairs to finally have a decent place to live.
