Here are some of our heroes...
We would like to introduce Viktor Lehkodukh , a paralyzed Ukrainian soldier from waist down, who needs our help and assistance. Every day we continue to receive new requests to help wounded Ukrainian soldiers. Viktor is from Dnipropetrovsk region. He got married to Halyna after his injury and together with his wife they are fighting Voktor’s paralysis.
Viktor Lehkodukh is a 26 years old Ukrainian soldier, who was paralyzed from the waist down from wounds he received, while fighting in the ATO zone with the 25th Separate Dnepropetrovsk Airmobile Brigade. Prior to ATO, Viktor went to Airmobile Troops Academy in Lviv 2009-20013. With developing conflict in the east of Ukraine in March 2014th, Viktor went to Anti Terrorist Operation (ATO) conflict zone. On August 16th during reconnaissance operation a mine felt right next to Viktor and soldier got multiple shrapnel’s wounds all over his body, burns and multiple broken bones. The biggest shrapnel got stuck in Viktor’s spine that left the soldier paralyzed waist down. Right from the battlefield Viktor was evacuated to Kharkiv Army Hospital and 4 days latter Viktor was transported Odessa Army Hospital for further treatments and surgeries. Since the injury Viktor was rehabilitated in various facilities and could get on his feet and make several steps with a walker.
Viktor is dreaming to get back on his feet without a walker and requested help from Revived Soldiers Ukraine for a long term rehabilitation in Los Angeles at Next Step, which treats people with serious injuries of the central nervous system. Revived Soldiers Ukraine will need to cover monthly costs of therapy ($1,375), room and board ($1,325) for 6 month totaling $16,200. We would like to ask you to support Viktor in his journey to recovery and ability to walk again.
