Many ask, how can I help in Ukraine?
Turning the spotlight to the resilience of a war-torn nation, Antonina Kumka from Protez joins us to discuss the challenging yet uplifting strides in building sustainable prosthetic solutions amidst Ukraine's ongoing crisis. From meeting a double amputee soldier, which ignited a transformation in prosthetic care, to collaborating with international partners for local capacity building, Antonina's journey is nothing short of remarkable. The episode touches on Ukraine's storied history in tech innovation, the hurdles in device certification, and the paramount importance of psychological support for amputees. It's a stirring reminder of the indomitable human spirit and the profound difference one person's resolve can make in the lives of many.
