These kids have seen war.

The’Kharkiv Station’ voluntary group receives refugees from the East of Ukraine.  Hundreds of families from Lugansk and Donetsk regions arrive in Kharkiv. Those who choose to stay in the city are assisted in finding temporary accommodation; those who move on westward are given train tickets, but everybody is fed and welcomed.  Kharkovites donate food, clothes, medicine and money on the daily basis.

Kids are the most vulnerable group of those who survived the Russian aggression.  They come hungry, stressed and frightened.  They fear sounds of distant fire or fireworks (the latter have been banned in Kharkiv recently for this reason).  They need psychological recuperation and love, and Kharkiv Station volunteers provide those.

Kira Jafarova,the photographer who took these images, is not an artist or a journalist.  She is a psychologist doing a voluntary job with the refugees.
