Karabin Camp, in collaboration with the Alphabet of Life Charitable Foundation and Camp Good News, orchestrated a journey to the United States for 22 children who had endured the traumas of war.
Andriy's idyllic life with his loving family in the village of Sofiivka, Chernihiv region, was shattered by the onset of a full-scale Russian invasion. Fleeing the war, Andriy's family, along with relatives, embarked on a fateful journey to Kyiv in two cars.
Their path intersected with a massive Russian convoy, leading to a devastating encounter. A Russian tank deliberately rammed their car, instantly killing Andriy's father and mother. Andriy, miraculously surviving, was pulled from the wreckage and interrogated by Russian soldiers and left on the side of the road.
