Canadian Doctors to Give Free Reconstructive Surgery to Ukrainian Veterans in Kiev

In Kiev, on February 19 – 28, 2016, Canadian doctors will provide free reconstructive surgery to wounded Ukrainian soldiers and Maidan activists.

As a correspondent of UKRINFORM reported, this initiative was organized by the Canadian-Ukrainian Fund in cooperation with the government of Canada.  "All operations will be free.  It is expected that there will be about 30-40 patients," the Fund informed.

To carry out this mission, the government of Canada has invested 1.2 million Canadian dollars.  "Canadian doctors, together with their Ukrainian colleagues, will perform surgery on the face and upper extremities, as well as correct post-traumatic craniofacial deformities, soft tissue defects and scars," the organization stated.

All who need treatment can make an appointment by phone at (+380) 954-35-3033.
