On 27 October 2015, doctors from the third Canadian medical mission to Ukraine made a reconstructive operation on Mykola, a young boy that was maimed in the war in Ukraine. The Canadian team of medical professionals worked together with their Ukrainian colleagues to reconstruct his craniofacial defects.

The 11-yea-old boy from Mariupol was playing with an undetonated radio-propelled grenade with his friends in August, not realizing what it is.

“The unthinkable happened… the RPG exploded and Mykola’s 4 year old brother died on the spot. Mykola was airlifted to Zaporizhzhia for medical attention where they were able to save his life.
