Ludmila, 66, with her husband in their home in the village of Kuteynikovo, Donetsk region, where MSF runs a mobile clinic. She says the main problem here is that drugs are not available, and if they are, they’re too expensive.

The village’s doctor was moved to another town when the conflict began so the community has been without a regular doctor for months. The local pharmacy is closed because it has not been possible to get a supply of medicines since the conflict began. Residents must travel to the nearest larger town of Amvrosiyevka to purchase drugs at one of the private pharmacies, although the price of medicines has increased significantly and many people cannot afford it. Now an MSF doctor visits twice a week to provide free consultations and medicines.
