A Meath businesswoman travels to Ukraine to rescue her 98-year-old grandmother and 70-year-old mother

A Ukrainian businesswoman from Meath plans a flight back to her home country to save her elderly mother and grandmother.

Uba Healy, who lives in Trim, Co. Meath, eventually persuaded her 70-year-old mother Nina and 98-year-old grandmother Galina to leave their Haivoron hometown after a Russian threat to bomb cemeteries prevented them from opening their Loved ones to visit in a tradition of Easter Sunday.

Currently, Nina pushes Galina to air raid shelters in a wheelbarrow and carries her on her back to the basements, despite Nina’s pleas for safety.

Although everything is ready for them to depart on the Ukrainian side, Luba finds it difficult to find a minibus that she and her husband Eugene can use to pick her up from the Polish border.

“I was chatting with my mom last week and realized something was wrong. She seemed much more anxious than usual. On Easter Sunday, it’s a big tradition that nobody eats until the food is blessed, then they go to the cemeteries to visit loved ones before the Easter eggs are exchanged,” said Luba, who is in Trim, Co. Meath lives.

“My mother told me that the mayor closed all the cemeteries because the Russians threatened to bomb them on Easter Sunday. That really hit her.

“I told her I didn’t want to say goodbye to her every night because I didn’t know if I would talk to her again in the morning. She eventually broke down and agreed to come to Ireland. Both she and my nana only agreed if I promised that I would take her back to her homeland as soon as possible.

“I have everything in place there. Your bags are packed, I have a driver and I hope that the family doctor will come too. If not, she can give sedatives and an IV for grandma. I trained to be a nurse in Ukraine so I can put an IV drip.”

She had also hoped to bring two other relatives and leave supplies there.

“But I can’t find a minibus here for Eugene and I to drive over to pick her up and drop her off. We had one, but it failed.

“If anyone has a minibus to hire us at all, we would be more than grateful. I’ve spent the last few months worrying and crying for my mum and grandma and now I’ve finally convinced them to come to Ireland and live with us, I can’t disappoint them.”
