25.01.2017

3,218 Donbas children are provided with targeted assistance for urgent treatment and surgeries from Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center.

Every week the Humanitarian Center makes a decision about helping families, who contacted us. People ask to help with conduct of urgent surgeries, purchasing of medications, consumables and rehabilitation equipment. Assistance is provided to children under 18 on both sides of the contact line.  

One of them is 13-year-old Ania from Donetsk, who has intracranial tumour. More than a year ago, the girl already had a surgery to remove the tumour and install a titanium plate in the skull, but a relapse occurred. And Ania needs a surgery again. The family addressed the Humanitarian Center for help, and the girl was provided with assistance for surgery.
