Medicines for seriously ill children


For the eighth time Zoya Petrovna from the village of Gornoye near the city of Khartsyzsk comes to the controlled territory, to Mariupol, to get anticonvulsant preparations for her eldest daughter.

The trouble came to the family four years ago with the outbreak of hostilities in the Donbas. During just another shelling, both Zoya Petrovna's daughters were terribly frightened. The younger began to stutter because of strong experiences, and the elder Masha had an epileptic fit for the first time.

Now Masha is 12, but mother still accompanies her to school and during the walks - most often fits happen to the girl in the open air.

The child can not do without anticonvulsant medicines. The Rinat Akhmetov Hedquarters regularly provides them to the family.

"There is a special program "Medicines for Children", within the framework of which the Headquarters gives medicines for seriously ill children living in uncontrolled territory. And also for the children from resettled families which moved to the peaceful territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions", says Marionella Koroleva, specialist of the program "Targeted Assistance" of the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Headquarters. - Anti-convulsant and anti-asthmatic medicines are given in pharmacies of Bakhmut, Kramatorsk and Mariupol".

 During implementation of the project "Medicines for Children", more than 1,300 seriously ill children received assistance from the Headquarters.
