Elderly In War-Torn Ukraine Face Problems Accessing Health Care, Medications

New York Times: In Rebel Territory of Ukraine, Older Residents Fight to Live
“…Even before the war, it was tough here in the Donetsk coal basin [in Ukraine] to navigate the aches and pains of old age on a meager pension. Now, it is a battle for survival, and looking grimmer by the day as fighting intensifies despite a shaky cease-fire. … Doctors Without Borders can provide very limited help because Ukraine restricts the kinds and amounts of supplies that the organization can bring into the country…” (Roth, 4/15).
