Representative of Vayfond – about rescuing Chechens from Russia

The charity organization Vayfond (Sweden) came into the spotlight in 2017. Its key priority is assistance to refugees from the Chechen Republic. Ukraine is the first country for many asylum-seekers persecuted in Russia. The organization representative Tatyana Bondarenko told about assistance to refugees from the North Caucasus, as well as about the goals and objectives of the Ukrainian foundation Kavkaz.Realii.

Rescuing from imminent death

– When did you find out about Vayfond and their activity?

– This summer. My friend from Austria works there.

– What attracted you  in this organization?

– It protects human rights in a region where people suffer from occupation and unlawfulness. Persecution of people for political and religious views or just for disloyalty to the regime is outrageous. Commonly, the help of Vayfond for these people means rescuing from imminent death.

– What do you do at this job?

– Comprehensive assistance to persons under Vayfond care, who are located in Ukraine. From legal support to solving everyday problems.

– What are you and how does it help you in working with refugees?

– I am majoring in a Financial Accounting. Things help me are general skills that I learned at work and knowledge of languages.

– Positively, as well as to all my undertakings. In addition, I continue to work in my major field.

– Prior to work at Vayfond, did you come across Nakhs, have an idea about the problems of refugees from Chechnya, the North Caucasus?

– I was lucky to have friends among the Nakhs, my paternal great-grandfather is from Dagestan. I am interested in the events of the North Caucasus, and I had an idea of ​what was happening in the region and the problems that refugees faced.
