Caring for the health of those affected by the occupation: Farmak supported the Mobile Doctors project for the third time

For the third time, with the support of Farmak, the Mobile Doctors project helped people from the de-occupied territories to undergo medical examinations and receive medicines. This time, last weekend, doctors visited the village of Pakul, Chernihiv region, located about 12 km from the border with Belarus, which also suffered from russian aggression.

The villages and towns that were under occupation experienced terrible events: torture, hunger, shelling, constant fear, lack of necessities, water, and hygiene products. Of course, all this affected the health of their residents. Many people who remained in their home villages after the occupation are elderly people who have no one to take care of them, therefore it is very difficult for them to recover without outside help.

Thanks to the Mobile Doctors project, the residents of Pakul village underwent an almost complete medical examination, which allowed them to start treatment.

The car is equipped with an ultrasound room, a laboratory for tests (a general blood test, a thyroid-stimulating hormone test) and a psychotherapist’s office.

Registration and admission of patients was carried out at the local urgent care center, where the organizers brought all the necessary equipment. During the trip to Pakul, patients had consultations with a neurologist, gynecologist, endocrinologist, cardiologist (including ECG), therapist, dermatological oncologist, vascular surgeon, gastroenterologist, ophthalmologist.  We also set up a pharmacy, where people were given medicines for free.

During these two days, 213 people underwent more than 1,000 examinations. In particular, 90 people visited an ophthalmologist, 70 visited an endocrinologist, and more than 60 visited a psychotherapist.

“It is necessary to provide assistance and “restore” health of the people now, because diseases will not wait until everything stabilizes. Every time we see people coming for examination, it is difficult to keep emotions under control. Unfortunately, many of them are in serious condition, unable to take care of themselves, get to a hospital in another city or buy medicines. These people need support, and we, businesses, society, charitable organizations, must help them,” says Yevgeniya Piddubna, Director of Corporate Communications at Farmak.

Last year, within the framework of the Mobile Doctors project, with the support of Farmak, assistance was provided to residents of the village of Moshchun (Kyiv region) and Kyyinka (Chernihiv region).
