Opti Taxi and the Soborna Charitable Foundation: on September 1 we will support the children of our fallen soldiers! Kyiv
For the second year in a row, September 1, Knowledge Day, was overshadowed by military events in which millions of our children took part.
According to the UN, more than 2 million children have been forced to flee their homes. For hundreds of thousands of people there is no turning back as their homes and schools are inaccessible due to destruction and occupation.
Today we should also remember those children whose parents will never take them to school, college or university.
These are children who need help.
Today our people are experiencing a lot of sadness and death.
We must support the families of soldiers every day, because they are the ones we owe our freedom to.
Families who lost a hero during the war cannot remain alone with grief and pain.
We encourage you to support our project and convince the children of fallen soldiers that they matter and that their parents' sacrifice was not in vain.
We will be grateful for every hryvnia that will be allocated to the project of systemic assistance to children and families of fallen soldiers. We will also be grateful for reposts and any information support for the initiative.
As part of the joint project, Opti Taxi and the Soborna Charitable Foundation will tell you personal stories of the families and children of our fallen soldiers.
This is another reminder of the cost of our freedom and the need to support those without whose sacrifices we could not live in a free country.
NOTE:Below you can read the real stories of the children and families of our fallen defenders.

The girl not only had a rest, but also found real friends from different parts of Ukraine. So, this summer, Anya is looking forward to returning to camp to hug the friends she's only interacted with online for a year through text messages and video calls. This time Anya will go with her younger sister Marinka.
And this year Anya started shooting at the shooting range.
