On May 23, the staff of the Office together with the Charity Fund “Center for Assistance to Street Children” of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, provided an opportunity to undergo rehabilitation in the children’s psychoneurological sanatorium “Kaluga-Bor” for a child who suffered as a result of aggression waged by Ukraine. In October 2014, a child born in 2000 received an open penetrating cerebral trauma with a severe brain contusion, as well as penetrating shrapnel wound with the destruction of the left eyeball.

“It’s hard to imagine the scope of the psychological and social problems that physically challenged children face every day. But, we can help change the lives of children and give them a hope for a bright future, to make their life more vivid. It’s one of the main tasks of the Donetsk People’s Republic to take care of the younger generation, because children are the future of our state”, – said Dmitry Popov, the Chief Administrator of the Human Rights Ombudsman’s Office in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
