Expanding Hope: A New Dawn in Dnipro

This past weekend, U+ System, with generous support from Direct Relief, ventured to Dnipro, Ukraine, to make a difference to a new batch of amputees.

Despite facing the aftermath of an air attack on Dnipro that day, causing devastation and human loss, the event pressed on. For these amputees, the event marked a pivotal moment – a glimpse into a future filled with possibility, thanks to the arrival of a case brimming with prosthetic legs, courtesy of U+ System and Direct Relief.

“This event felt like the first event we had 6 months ago because this was such an eye-opener to all of the participants. We want to continue going to Dnipro as there are so many people here that need help,” says Oleksandra Mostepan, CEO of U+ System.

Once more, the prosthetist-in-training Oleksander, himself being a veteran, fitted 5 attendees with running blades and the Levitate Forever.
