After the frame has been repaired, covered with plastic sheeting, and the asbestos delivered, the strike team can go into action, summoned by a post on Telegram, in the evening as usual. The side is picked. And off we go : the first sheet of asbestos can be sent for fitting and nailing by the roof climbers. The asbestos rise at a steady pace, sometimes slowed down by the necessary trimming, but the laughter and joyful exchanges continue uninterrupted until well after dark, when the roof is completely covered. Another family protected from the elements.
The house of Sonia and Igor was hit by four artillery shots and totally destroyed last year. Fortunately they were in a safe place with their daughter Nikita at the time, and Igor is a professionnal builder. Couragously they worked tirelessly with the help of BoMozhemo, and here they are putting the floor and the electricity. It is a grace to share these days with them, sorting out bricks salvaged from the ruins, crushing them with a sledgehammer for cement or putting the greenhouse back together with its promise of borsch, and other traditional vegetable dishes.
