Liudmila: Kiev's Queen of Chess
In 1960, Liudmila was the top chess player in Ukraine and a member of the Soviet Union’s national team. But life has been cruel to Liudmila. She was born in evacuation, 1,500 kilometers from Kiev, in a Russian city where her family had fled to escape the Nazis. And though she worked in a factory for decades, the collapse of the Soviet Union left her with a pension of less than $2/day.
Liudmila worked hard her whole life, only to end up alone in poverty. Now it’s up to us to help her.
