At the age of 19, I suffered a serious injury that forced me to see life from a different perspective – from a wheelchair. It took me years to learn to take care of myself and to start my own family. At the start of the war in 2014, I used my experiences to create InvaFishki – a project that changes the quality of life of people with disabilities. Subsequently, the information platform began to generate numerous requests for goods that either did not exist in Ukraine or did not exist at all. This was what inspired me to create a social enterprise for the supply and production of assistive devices for people with various forms of disability.
