LPR obstetricians provided childbirth assistance to 135 women from Kiev-controlled areas of the Lugansk Region as part of the Donbass People reunification humanitarian programme, said deputy chief physician for mother and child care of Lugansk Republican Hospital Oleg Veliyev.
“As of today, we have provided assistance to 135 women and their newborn children. Here they have received obstetric care and postpartum care, postoperative care; some newborns were placed in neonatal intensive care unit," he said.
The hospital provided the services free of charge, Valiev emphasized.
Today Lugansk Republican Hospital received new medical equipment for newborn care delivered by the Russia's EMERCON humanitarian convoy.
Earlier LPR obstetricians saved a pregnant woman and her baby after she had been denied medical assistance in Kiev-controlled part of the region.
On February 17 DPR and LPR Heads Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitskiy launched the program of humanitarian assistance for residents of Kiev-occupied part of Donbass. The main objective is to provide financial, educational and medical aid to vulnerable social groups.
LPR Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry launched the humanitarian program website.
