The standard of living in Ukraine continues to decline. Inflation, unemployment, escalating food prices and the war in Eastern Ukraine have left its citizens decimated.

There is no social safety-net for those with disabilities in Eastern Europe.

Close to the front lines of the war in East Ukraine, thousands of people live without any form of medical care for their families. All of the hospitals have been closed down.
