Ukraine's wounded warriors

Soldiers hold hands during one of the exercises in a workshop organised by Wounded Warrior Ukraine. A part of the problem lies with the fact that mental illness is still a stigma in the Ukraine and soldiers have a hard time reaching out for help.

In addition to the 8,000 people who have lost their lives in the conflict in Ukraine, thousands more have come home with horrific injuries. The medical system was not prepared to handle the psychological effects of the war. The organisation Wounded Warrior Ukraine runs workshops in Kiev to help wounded veterans, volunteers and paramedics deal with the effects of the war.
