Members of the local community live in simply furnished rooms. All of them are situated in a single tenant block in Avdiivka - town located in Ukrainian conflict zone. Elena Pisareva rents a space in which the community lives. A place which has spontaneously became a kind of rescue-help center. Not-official one but needed. Elena prepared a list of goods, people lack. First of all they needed: heaters, water cattles, electric cookers, beds, wardrobes, towels, and bedding. Most crucial were heaters provided at the beginning of the action. Thanks to donors, crowd-funding gathered more financial resources, than expected. Elena could buy needed things and invite more than 15 people to stay in the center. She could help women, single mothers with children, alcoholics and drug addicted living on the street.
