Iva and Olena are just two of the one hundred refugees now living with Petersfield families.

They speak to Shine Radio’s Stephen Martin about their early experiences in  Petersfield, the challenges they face integrating with the local community and how living away from family members still in Ukraine adds distress to their lives.

If you run a local business that could use the advanced skills and qualifications of Petersfield’s new Ukrainian community we would be pleased to connect you with those looking for appropriate work.

Iva speaks a little English and Olena translates for her in this piece.
