24 February marks one year since the war started in Ukraine. One year on, many people have lost their jobs and suffered severe damages to their homes, and property. The main sources of livelihoods – agriculture and employment in factories – have been significantly disrupted. Regular waves of attacks on energy infrastructure continue to cause destruction and leave millions with no electricity, disrupting water supply and heating systems, while temperatures have fallen below zero in most parts of the country.


When we go to people who have no window, and give them light,
both literally and figuratively, you open up this tunnel of light for them
so they can see something beyond these ruins.
