Myrne. Donetsk region. Mother and son both have congenital cerebral palsy. Their house in the town of Granitne was destroyed during the first shelling, and they now reside in the town of Myrne ("Peaceful"), in the Ukrainian-controlled territory, in a makeshift nursing home (the building was previously a school) for PWD and the elderly. The nursing home is staffed entirely by volunteers.
Opytne. Donetsk region. Opytne is in the GCA, just a few miles from the destroyed Donetsk airport. This woman, like many of her neighbors, is living in a basement. When there is no shelling, her neighbors help her to the front door of the building for a moment of fresh air and sunlight.
