How does one feel to leave a hometown knowing you will never come back? But despite all of that, to start running your own business? Today's story is about a confectioner Nataliya Rak. At first, it was only a hobby, but after the war started in Donbas, it became the main source of income for her family. We continue our Close East project.

As part of the project #CloseEast112, we go on telling about people who make Donbass better for fellow countrymen and closer to the whole country. This film is presented by the 112 Ukraine TV channel in the framework of the project with the Ukraine Confidence Building Initiative (UCBI II), funded by the US agency of international development USAID. It is devoted to the people of Donbas region who have managed to change their lives in spite of the war unfolding in Eastern Ukraine.
