Svitolina to continue fundraising efforts after seeing 'horror and consequences' of Russian invasion on return home

Elina Svitolina went to Ukraine in February and while there she was able to see all the horror left in the wake of Russia's invasion of her home country.

She went to Bucha and Irpin, two smaller cities not far from Kyiv that suffered horrific consequences during the invasion. Multiple battles took place in the area with many civilians losing their lives as a direct consequence of it. She is once again raising funds for the UNITED24 cause which aims to help people who were affected by the war and her most recent efforts are aimed at those two cities specifically.

On the cause, Svitolina wrote on social media:

“A month has passed since I visited Bucha and Irpin and saw with my own eyes all the horror and consequences of the Russian invasion Lost and destroyed lives, the homes of our people. So grateful to @grammarly for joining my fundraiser and contributing $80,000. For my part, I will add another $20,000. This way, only $20,000 remains to be raised for the restoration of the residential complex at 53 Kyivska Street in Iprin. I invite you to join, so that 390 Ukrainians can return home as soon as possible."
