Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center keeps helping with rehabilitation of injured children


In April three injured children, who had been wounded during hostilities in Donbas, went through a treatment course as part of "Rehabilitation of Injured Children" project of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center. Now the children who faced the horrors of war are staying in "Velykyi Luh" health resort in Zaporizhia region, which is located right on the Dnipro River. The Center's employees note that the health resort has not only favourable conditions for rehabilitation of injured children, but also highly qualified staff members, who will provide the necessary assistance in the recovery.

"Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center supports children affected due to Donbas conflict. Last year the health resort hosted 53 injured children for rehabilitation, – the specialist of "Targeted Assistance" direction, Maryna Koroliova, shares. – Unfortunately, children get different injuries due to the active military actions, from shrapnel wounds to loss of limbs. They have psychologists and doctors working with them. Because in some cases, the earlier we started rehabilitation of children, the more chances for recovery they have.

Now there are three injured Donbas children staying in the health resort. According to the doctors they have positive dynamics in the recovery.

"We have a 15-year-old boy Danylo. He got a shrapnel wound, – Roman Stepura, rehabilitation specialist at the health resort, shares. – About 10 days ago he couldn't move his arm. And now he is already doing exercises with dumbbells – they are not heavy yet, but still".

This year, as part of the Center's project, children will go through another course of recovery. "In the second half of May it is planned to send three children for rehabilitation. Altogether in 2017 we are planning to arrange health improvement for 18 children. This will help them to restore the functions of damaged organs fully or partially and reduce the negative psychological effects obtained after the injury", – Volodymyr Denysenko, the Manager of "Targeted Assistance" direction, summarized.
