Friends, a big thank you to all of you who donated money and shared our fundraiser for purchasing a car for wounded warrior Serhiy Khrapko! Today, we have great news, the car has been purchased!
War hero Serhiy Khrapko lives in Kyiv with his wife and two young kids. Before the war, Serhiy worked in a private company that was making and selling school furniture. He was drafted on January 31, 2015. At the time, his daughter was only one year old and his son was 7.
Serhiy lost his left arm and left leg in the war. He was wounded on May 16, 2015 near Stanytsia Luhanska. After the heavy shelling, Serhiy and a fellow soldier were assisting a wounded soldier. They had just pulled him to the bushes, and Serhiy started providing first aid when the shelling resumed and a mine landed close by. The wounded soldier was killed on the spot, and Serhiy was heavily wounded. The other soldier got a concussion but he pulled Serhiy out to safety and provided first aid.
