Elena, has a permanent disability of 100%. She lives in a government run apartment on an allowance. The woman is in the country utterly alone, her only son moved to Ukraine many years ago and is unable to help her.
Elena turned to us through her social worker, she is seeking help in buying an air conditioner and food. The woman lives on the top floor - it is unbearably hot in summer due to the fact that the roof heats up, and in winter it can get very cold due to strong winds and lack of central heating. Both of these weather conditions adversely affect this woman's health.
