Today, November 13, 2023, the coordination center of the “Territories without Corruption” was visited by an amazing woman – the founder and head of the CF «Time of Help» Victoriya Volkova, who came from Uzhgorod (Zakarpattia region). She was met in the office by Vyacheslav Sayenko – Secretary General of the International Anti-Corruption Assembly, Viktor Badiia – Head of the International Union of Public Organizations – Territory without Corruption and Natalia Ovsianyk – President of the First International Public Media-communication Alliance.
From the first days of the full-scale invasion of the occupants into the territory of Ukraine, Viktoriya has focused her energies and capabilities on helping our military on the front line. With her team, funds-partners both on the territory of Ukraine and abroad, she has and continues to purchase thermal imagers, tourniquets, bandages, military ammunition, cars, as well as medicines for the AFU, personally delivering humanitarian cargo to the hands of soldiers on the «zero», sometimes overcoming up to 13 thousand kilometers in a week. At one point she even sold her car to purchase quadrocopters for our military.
She also did not forget about the internally displaced persons. She organized accommodation, food and supplies for those who needed it. She helped to find and equip temporary housing, supplying the necessary appliances. Even in her house, about 30 people lived for more than six months.
During the meeting Victoriya told about some of the situations that arose during her volunteering activities. She did not organize any donations. All purchases of humanitarian aid Victoriya made for her personal savings and with the help of her comrades and foreign partner foundations and manufacturers. And, of course, this did not go unnoticed…
«The guys and girls of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are superhuman.
Thanks to you, we have the opportunity to continue living in our native country. We have the opportunity to live, to love, to breathe. There is no word that can describe all the gratitude that every Ukrainian feels. Children say that you are superheroes, adults say that you are the color of the nation. And everyone is right. May God protect you. We know that you will return with Victory, because only Ukrainians know how to fight, because the will is each of you. Thank you for the night and for the day at home.
Glory to Ukraine!»
