This is a lady named Natalia. The tallest boy is one of her two sons. Her older son and husband are fighting in Ukraine. Natalia shares a 2-bedroom apartment with Maria (not pictured). Her husband is also fighting in Ukraine. SWARM delivered new mattresses, bedding and bunk beds to these 2 families. Natalia came to the LCOS Stampede breakfast. They are lovely people. Two of the little boys were taking violin, flute and piano lessons in Ukraine. There is a huge need now for anything related to setting up kitchens, bathrooms, bedding. LCOS is starting a fundraiser for mattresses (so hard to accept if not new with the risk of bedbugs).

To donate, contact a SWARM board member or email: calgaryswarm@gmail.com Photo submitted by Jaqui who volunteers with SWARM and helped with the delivery of the new beds.
