Ternopil Residents Join Our Volunteers in Making Trench Candles

Recently, the residents of Ternopil (living in 57 Budnyi Street) brought four boxes of ready-made trench candles to the Volunteer Centre of I. Horbachevsky Ternopil National Medical University. They were made by Alla Lishchynska, who lives at that address.

This woman likes to make decorative candles, does needlework. Residents of the building at 57 Budny Street posted an announcement that the Volunteer Centre of TNMU needed materials for the manufacture of trench candles, and began collecting the necessary materials.

They brought empty cans for our students, who are involved in trench candles manufacturing, for three times. Alla Lishchynska volunteered to make trench candles herself and encouraged the neighbours to join her. She watched a video on the Internet, bought paraffin. She gave the ready-made candles to her neighbours to deliver to the TNMU Volunteer Centre.

Next morning, these sources of heat and light were immediately sent in the direction of Bakhmut to the military. Our defenders express their appreciation to the concerned residents of Ternopil for their care and support.

TNMU Press Secretary, Yanina Chaikivska.
