Donetsk, Aug 1 - DAN. The international public organisation Fair Help on Tuesday sent seven seriously ill DPR children to Moscow for treatment, a Fund official told Donetsk News Agency.

“In the morning, we sent seven children aged six months to 13 years to Russia for treatment,” said Natalia Avilova who manages the Fund’s programme for assistance to underage victims of fighting or natural disasters.

The children require cancer, neurosurgery and ophthalmic treatment.

Earlier, representative of the Organisation’s Donetsk office Tatyana Svetlichnaya said the trip to Moscow was planned for Monday, 31 July. It had to be postponed for a day due to technical reasons.

Fair Help was founded by Elizaveta Glinka, member of the Civil Society and Human Rights Council under the Russian president.

During the Donbass conflict, she arranged treatment in Moscow for almost 500 seriously ill children from DPR and LPR. Glinka was killed in the Tu-154 plane crash in Sochi area on 25 December 2016. Russian journalist, political writer Ksenia Sokolova took on Glinka’s cause.*jk
