Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center saves the life of a three-month-old girl

11.05.2017

Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center keeps on providing targeted assistance to Donbas civilians and internally displaced persons. The main Center's focus is children, who found themselves in a difficult life situation and need emergency medical care: treatment and surgeries.

For example, in early May Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center paid for expensive surgery of three-month-old Oleksandra. Doctors revealed a very disappointing diagnosis – congestion of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. The baby could have died.

"The girl's mom called the Center's hotline and told that her little girl needed an urgent operation. The baby needed a shunt to drain the liquid. The family was forced to leave the armed conflict area in Donbas. The mother is raising her daughter alone and she cannot pay for the operation. The Center provided prompt assistance to little Sasha. The operation was successful and now the state of the girl is stable", – Maryna Koroliova, the specialist of "Targeted Assistance" direction, shares.

Since the outbreak of the armed conflict in the East of Ukraine Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center provided targeted assistance for medical treatment and surgeries to more than 8,000 adults and children.

"Targeted medical assistance can be received by residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and internally displaced persons. It is provided to children and adults belonging to the following benefit-entitled categories: families raising orphans and children under custody; multi-child families with three and more children; single mothers or widows with children; families in difficult life circumstances (families, who have more than one severely ill family member, for example, mother with cancer and her child with ICP, or two disabled persons of the 1st group etc.). Assistance is provided only if the relevant documents are available", – Maryna Koroliova says.

The requests for targeted medical assistance can be placed via the Humanitarian Center's hotline 0-800-509-001 or sent to email helpdonbass@fdu.org.ua.
