Way to Health
HUNPA actively collaborates with the Way to Health charitable foundation of Dnipro (Ukraine).
Way to Health runs a rehabilitation center which since the beginning of the war has provided free rehabilitation physiotherapy and psychological assistance to war victims, both military and civilian, who have suffered serious mutilations, neuromuscular damage and psychological trauma.
The center first prepares patients to receive limb prosthetics with physiotherapy and exercises done with a virtual reality system specially developed by a small IT company in Kiev and then helps them recover complete independent mobility with the use of the prosthesis provided by the State. From the beginning of its activity to today, Way to Health has treated more than 400 patients, mostly young people.
During mission 0, we donated an ambulance to Way to Health to be used as a mobile clinic to carry out visits and assistance to the needy population in the war zones in Donbas, an activity that we inaugurated with our intervention and which now continues with local resources.
All Way to Health services are provided free of charge, it is therefore important that they are supported with donations. You can make yours here through the related foundation A Warm Heart' Foundation.
