In Ukraine, rebuilding starts with neighbours' help

Following battles that raged around Kyiv, crews of volunteers now work to collect anything that can be reused, setting up neat piles of bricks, destroyed kitchen appliances for scrap metal, and chunks of insulation panels. The salvaged material is used to help rebuild homes destroyed along the perimeter of Russia's failed attempt during the initial stages of the war to surround and capture Ukraine's capital.

Volunteers clear rubble on the second floor of Zhanna and Serhiy Dynaeva's house, which was destroyed by Russian bombardment in the village of Novoselivka, near Chernihiv, Ukraine on Aug. 13, 2022. Residents in many heavily-damaged areas in Ukraine have set up their own initiatives to rebuild homes before the winter as international organizations rush aid to Ukraine to help with the reconstruction effort.
