Last March, Tetyana and her son Misha arrived in Moldova after leaving Odessa in Ukraine.
Micola is sitting outside the Mobile Clinic waiting to be triaged. He holds in his hands a canvas bag containing his passport and results from previous clinical exams.
He is 82 years old and arrived in Moldova after a two-day journey. He lost his wife many years ago and had no relatives in Kyiv, his city, so when volunteers from his neighbourhood invited him to leave Ukraine with a convoy, he accepted.
Micola enters the Mobile Clinic holding his canvas bag in his hands. The careful grip with which he clutches it makes it seem like the most important thing in his life.
In Bălți, Moldova, our staff offer primary medical care, nursing and psychological assistance to refugees who, like Micola, are fleeing the war in Ukraine.
