One year after fighting broke out in eastern Ukraine, people living in the heavily affected Lugansk region are trying to slowly get life back to a sense of normality. Schools have reopened and teams of residents have come out on the first days of spring to sweep the debris of war in the streets. However, with the healthcare system under intense strain and medical supply lines cut or severely disrupted since last summer, people continue to struggle to access basic healthcare and medicines.
