United Help Ukraine raised funds for the purchase of two accumulators for wheelchair for Mykhaylo (Angel) Lupeyko. We are glad to report that these very much needed accessories have been purchased and delivered to Mykhaylo.
Currently, we are raising money to help Mykhaylo purchase a car. He really needs it in his daily life to feel more self-reliant. If you wish to make your tax deductible donation for this cause, please visit the FB fundraiser page or send donations via PayPal to UnitedHelpUkraine@gmail.com (leave the note “for Angel”.)
Before the war, Mykhaylo (Angel) worked as a stage technician in his hometown of Novhorod-Siversky. When the war started, he volunteered to the army. Mykhaylo had been fighting from the very beginning of the war and had gone through the hottest points. He was nicknamed Angel because he was always close by when his comrades needed him the most. He was wounded in August, 2015, near the town of Debaltsevo. Mykhaylo lost both legs. But he is one of those people who never give up. “I will return to the front lines and will run so fast I will overtake the Russian tanks while they will be retreating from Ukraine,” says Angel jokingly.
