Humble Construction Worker Renovates War Veterans’ Apartments For Free

It’s an unfortunate truth that many veterans return home from war to a life of poverty. This injustice is what inspired one local construction worker in Russia to use his skills to help improve the living conditions of struggling veterans in his community.

Anton Savchuk is a 33-year-old construction worker from Russia who is on a mission to improve the lives of war veterans in his community.

Savchuck lives and works in Yekaterinburg where he says his favorite hobby is to help people.

He was inspired to aid veterans specifically after witnessing how poorly many of them live.

“These people are living far from good and it really bothered me. I thought, ‘How is this possible that those who served their motherland could live like this?’” Savchuck told Bored Panda.

The professional builder uses his own money in addition to donations from other community members to buy all of the construction materials and furniture for the renovations.

“We paid 99% for the first three renovations,” Savchuck said. “Then, some people started sending donations but there were very few of them. We even got a couple of donations from the USA, Canada, and Europe and even though these were rare cases, it really struck me.”

Savchuck has a few people who help him with each project which typically takes two to three weeks to complete.

The apartment of 47-year-old Polina Gennadievna is one of Savchuck’s most impressive renovations.

“We renovated a home that belonged to a veteran of the Second World War which consisted of three different parts, a disabled person, a tram driver, and another veteran who fought in the Siege of Leningrad,” Savchuck told Bored Panda.

95-year-old veteran Vasily Fedorovich and his wife Tamara Aleksandrovna, who have been together for over 60 years, also had their home transformed by Savchuck’s work.

Savchuck hopes to continue his project and expand it to help other members of the community who are in need.

“People with disabilities live in similar conditions. If my project lives on, I’ll include struggling teachers and doctors as well.”
