Russian charity in Syria doubling efforts after founder died helping children
Renowned Russian humanitarian and charity activist Elizaveta Glinka, widely known as Dr. Lisa found a place in all our hearts for her humanitarian service in Ukraine and Syria. Her foundation "Fair Help" will now be called "Fair Help by Doctor Lisa" to perpetuate the name of the deceased founder.
Sputnik Arabic spoke to a board member and head of the project for aiding children of Donbass and Syria, Natalia Avilova, about how the organization has been coping with everything since Elizaveta died.
"It has been almost half a year since she passed. Of course, the most difficult time for us and for our patients was the first three months. We, the team of Doctor Lisa, did not just lose a leader, we lost a mentor, a teacher and for many of us a friend. It was a big blow for all of us and for our patients," Avilova said.
She further said that the patients did not understand how they will be helped after Dr. Lisa's death, who will help them, whether the fund will be able to carry on with its work without its founder.
