Wales received a lot of funding from the UK, likely more than it gave in. We were still the poorest country in the UK but we received grants helped regional development and job creation. It wasn't enough but it was there. Without the EU we are now dependant on the kindness of the Westminster government, which has historically never given a toss about this country. That's includes the time when we've not been facing a recession. Even if they had the money we likely wouldn't see it.
The EU was also one of the few global platforms on which Wales could represent itself as a region. Like you've said, you don't know much about Wales. Now we face further obscurity, if that were even possible.

I don't know how we're going to survive this.
