Hjælp syge børn

16939191_263130510781682_6943854093855623524_nPeople, who do more for others, than they should, always fascinated me. Today I want to present you an interview with Olha, Ukrainian, who started the charity organisation for ill kids.

  • Please tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Olha. I am just a common person. I live in Denmark with my husband and two children, working. The only I can say that I get great satisfaction from helping people, especially kids.

  • How long are you in Denmark?

I came to Denmark about 12 years ago to work on a farm, where I spent 5 years. At that time I met my future husband. Afterwards we moved to the city, I got education, married and started the life as we have it now.

Куда нас приводят мечты… и как это происходит?

Good day everyone, English version of the story will come later, this is a Russian version of the story about Anna, who started her life from a new page several times, she started several companies, moved to another country, started there her publishing business and writes a book with her husband “How to create a TRUE partnership in marriage and in business?”

12439134_1064939546884269_4585328013358385476_nМеня зовут Анна Сандермоен. Фамилию свою я только что поменяла, потому что вышла замуж за человека из Норвегии и переехала жить к нему. Мы живем в Швейцарии. Раньше, пока я жила в России, даже представить себе не могла, что когда-нибудь откажусь от своей фамилии Чедия. Я думала, что не родился еще такой мужчина ради которого я бы отказалась от своей индивидуальности. Я всегда считала, что мое имя отражает мою индивидуальность. Из-за необычной фамилии, которая досталась мне по маминой линии от ее отца, моего дедушки, меня с детства часто дразнили в советских школах, но благодаря этому ощущение моей индивидуальности во мне только крепло. С тех пор как я встретила своего нынешнего мужа, для меня постепенно открылось иное понимание замужества: замужество для меня не связано с потерей индивидуальности или отказом от нее, напротив, я ее активно обогащаю и, мне кажется, (я надеюсь!) мой муж тоже. Для меня оказалось большой честью носить фамилию мужа, потому что таким образом я начала чувствовать себя и частью его семьи, и частью его страны. А для любого человека нет ощущения более ценного, чем ощущение принадлежности и причастности сообществу, которое не только тебя готово защитить, но также им можно и гордиться. То, что касается моей девичьей фамилии, я о ней почти не сожалею, потому что достижения и подвиги моих предков с этой фамилией были преданы страной забвению. Это стыд, позор и большая боль, но такова реальность.

Сейчас мне 42 года. У меня есть 11-летняя дочь от моего предыдущего гражданского брака в Москве. Она живет вместе с нами в Швейцарии и ходит здесь в местную школу.

Blogger’s first book

8grulxxjx1iMany articles I dedicated to other people.

But on this special day I want to write about myself.

Why is it day special? Because today I released my first book on amazon. And I would be very grateful, my dear readers, if you will support my project.

A little bit about me. I am Ukrainian, who is living in Denmark.

All my school years I was dreaming about travelling, and when I was 19, I found aupair job in Belgium. That year changed direction of my life. I understood how I enjoyed working with kids, I met many people from all over the world and they showed me the diversity of this planet.

Lecture about witch children in Nigeria

Latest-About-Anja-Ringgren-Loven-Husband-David-Emmanuel-Uwem-4Today I attended a very interested lecture in Aarhus.

It was hold by Anja Ringgren Loven.

Anja became international known because of her charity organisations ‘Din Nød hjælp‘ and ‘Hope for children of Africa‘.

I saw a documentary about her and read several articles, so when I heard about an opportunity to listen her speech, I was very exited.

Anja was talking about her life story, and I want to share it with you, my readers.

Anja was born in Denmark, her mother was a nurse, and she was brought up with the idea to help others (‘Life is long, so we have to take care of each other’ – often said her mother). Also she remembers, that when she and her sister didn’t want to eat dinner, the mother told, that children in Africa are starving, so they shouldn’t waste food. So the interest to Africa came from childhood.
