Description : Aleksandr, 60:
"My daughter and my grandson left. I use any opportunity to find internet connection and talk to them. I spent all my life working for the same telecommunications company, now I don’t have work and don’t receive pension. Our house was heavily damaged, so I moved here. Alone without electricity, I have read all the books here, some of them more than once.

I always dreamt that when I retire, I would go fishing with my grandson. I could not have imagined things would turn out like this.

The ICRC dry fuel bricks are handy and easy to use, they help us a lot to stay warm."
