Next story of the Close East is about doctor Elmira Aizyatulova from Donetsk. There she had a prestigious work, reputation and hundreds of grateful patients. She also became a happy grandmother and built a long-awaited home for the whole family. But before she even got used to it, a war came to her hometown. Her work saved her from depression - she opened her own clinic and started a new life.

As part of the project CloseEast112, we go on telling about people who make Donbass better for fellow countrymen and closer to the whole country. This film is presented by the 112 Ukraine TV channel in the framework of the project with the Ukraine Confidence Building Initiative (UCBI II), funded by the US agency of international development USAID. It is devoted to the people of Donbas region who have managed to change their lives in spite of the war unfolding in Eastern Ukraine.
