Nataliya Rezek has arrived in Ukraine

PIERRE, S.D.(DRGNews)- A registered nurse from Pierre has made it safely to her hometown in Ukraine.

Nataliya (na-TAL-ya) Rezek (ree-zk) says some of the people in Chernivtsi (churn-a-vit-zee) she’d like to see, aren’t there.

Rezek says damage to nuclear plants in Ukraine continues to be a very real fear, but she wasn’t going to let it stop her from going there to help however she’s able to.

Rezek knows others are making a sacrifice to allow her to be away from home for about five weeks.

Rezek is scheduled to leave Ukraine to come back to Pierre in mid-October.
