PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – A native Ukrainian is not giving up on her efforts to help her country.
“It’s still a struggle,” said Terra Bella Soaps business owner Yaroslava Snitsar. “For the people who say it’s not war, it’s not real, go and visit. We still have orphans. We still have dead people. We have children without limbs. We have broken families and broken cities.”
That’s why she’s encouraging the public to help her cause.
“We continue to buy and donate,” Snitsar said. “That’s what continues to help. I have some connections that you can connect not only with my city, but with Ukraine in general, with the military and others. It is very easy to find those links. I can post them on my site one more time and you can help whenever you can when you can.”
She also received an update on how her home town of Vinnytsia is faring after it was heavily bombed earlier this month.
“The civic center will be destroyed,” Snitsar said. “We had two more deaths in the hospital. We had some people transported to different places for treatment because we just couldn’t do it.”
Snitsar said she will continue donating money from her business in Ukraine as long as needed.
You can visit it at the Market in St. Andrews every Saturday at Oaks by the Bay Park in Panama City from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Her handmade products are also sold online.
