From the beginning of the conflict in the Donbas, while fleeing the war, people left their homes and settled in different parts of Ukraine, and practically without the help of the state began a new life "from scratch". Especially difficult it is for the elderly people who are forced to seek shelter in different corners. People gave their strength and health to work for the country, and when they were aged, the country would have to repay the debt and provide them with a decent life, but... Many of them have to step over their pride, asking for help. And it can be very humiliating for someone – to feel helpless.

Eve sits at the table and colors a funny picture. The girl is 11 years old and she is absolutely no different from her peers. We visited Eva in a rehabilitation center where she is undergoing treatment. Why does she need treatment? The girl hardly gets up from the table and we see how, in the literal sense, the earth moves away from under her feet.
Polina is 7 years old. She is a cheerful girl and a big talker. At first sight, Polina is not much different from other babies, but a hard corset that compresses her body and does not allow the spine to fold in half, and a wheelchair shows that the child is "special." Polina's everyday life is a daily hard struggle with SMA, but in this fight, there is always a place for smiles, joy, and laughter. Children with SMA do not need pity, they need support, attention, and help.

"The medical examination revealed that Misha should be monitored at the Transplantology Institute and should be put on a waiting list for a liver transplant," the beginning of this year was more than worrisome for a small family from Lisichansk.
