“I Will Be Grateful for the Rest of My Life”: A 68-Year-Old Resident of Uman, Who Suffered From a Missile Strike, Underwent Rehabilitation From the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation


On the morning of 28 April 2023, Russia launched another missile attack on Ukraine, hitting a residential apartment building in Uman. 68-year-old Lyubov Huryeva and her husband woke up when a heavy window frame fell on them. Everything around was damaged. The woman, who had health issues even before the tragedy, felt worse every day. After staying in the hospital, she underwent a rehabilitation course from the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation in a sanatorium in Zakarpattia.

“I will be grateful to the Foundation probably for the rest of my life. I am a person of respectable age, and I have never won anything in my entire life, not even the lottery. And here, after such a tragedy, I was treated with human kindness and given this voucher. I will bow low to these people. I will be thankful to them and will wish them good health all the time. I will wish everyone good and Victory,” Lyubov Huryeva admits.

In three weeks, the woman was discharged from the hospital and recommended a sanatorium-based therapy. According to Lyubov Huryeva, she turned to the social security fund and the trade union committee but was refused everywhere: no vouchers to sanatoriums were granted during the war, while she felt bad. The resident of Uman found out about the Foundation from the Internet, made a phone call and soon after, she went on a rehabilitation course.

According to Snizhana Chebotareva, the chief physician of Borzhava sanatorium, after the experience Lyubov Huryeva went through, she suffered panic attacks, insomnia, high blood pressure, and her limbs trembled. Now, the rehabilitation course is already yielding its results.
“Ms Huryeva receives a set of procedures and notices a significant improvement. The woman says that her blood pressure has normalized, and the quality of sleep has improved. She feels calmer now,” the doctor notes.

The project Treatment and Rehabilitation of Injured Adults is implemented within the framework of the program Rinat Akhmetov – Saving Lives.

The Foundation supports Ukrainians who suffered from attacks on residential districts. The aid includes medical treatment, rehabilitation, psychological assistance, etc.
