Doctors volunteer to help orphaned children of the Lugansk People’s Republic
“We have children with some of the most severe conditions. I think there’s no other institution like this in the LPR. Our priority is to… provide a better living environment, to help children learn basic skills, and to make them feel comfortable,” says Yury Ryzhenkov, Head of the Krasnodon Children’s Home. Despite the staff’s dedicated efforts, their passion alone falls short due to a lack of essential equipment and medications. This is why doctors from the “Road of Life” foundation are lending a helping hand to those children grappling with serious illnesses as well as those who care for them. The doctors provide treatment to children in multiple homes and orphanages across the Lugansk People’s Republic. Some of the children require palliative care, while others need surgeries and treatments that are only available in Moscow.
