At the end of August, a story about a Ukrainian boy named Danila Rak appeared in the media.

To earn money for a prosthetic leg for his mother, he walked 12 km to the regional center every day and sold milk.

Recently it turned out that the mother of our hero was given the opportunity to be treated in Germany.

Danila’s mother was injured during the shelling of the village of Novoselovka in the Chernihiv region.

The wounded woman was taken out of the village under fire from the invaders. As a result, he had to amputate his fingers.

Due to his injuries, he was no longer able to walk. Ludmila Koval’s leg still needs treatment.

The woman herself said in an interview that she would probably need an amputation and a prosthetic limb.

The bones are crushed and there is practically no chance of saving the limb.

Every day the 12-year-old teenager’s grandmother puts bottles of milk in his bag and he carries them on his bicycle 12 km.

There he only sells milk on the street. Danila already has regular customers, as the city’s residents already know his story and want to support him.

People say it’s simply impossible to walk by a story like that and not participate in it.

After the family’s problems were publicized in the media, a doctor from Lviv contacted them. He invited Lyudmila to his clinic for a consultation.

Stories like this make us believe in good. Thanks to her son’s efforts, the mother will be able to receive the necessary care and we hope to recover soon.
