At the International Conference in France, the First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska called on the community to help rebuild the Izium hospital.

This was reported by the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Syniehubov.

Izium Central City Hospital is the largest medical institution in Kharkiv Oblast. It was severely damaged by Russian occupiers. About 70% of the facility’s valuable medical equipment was destroyed or stolen by the invaders.

Today, this hospital, which served about 150,000 people before the war, can only work at 10% of its capacity. “The rapid renewal of the full operation of this institution is extremely important for the restoration of access to high-quality medical care for the residents of the liberated Izium,” noted Syneihubov.

“We are grateful to the First Lady for her concern for the residents of Kharkiv Oblast. With joint efforts, we will return normal life to the liberated territories of Ukraine,” he added.
