Description : Sofia lives in Krasnohorivka, a village located along the frontline. In 2018, Sofia was in the room where her friends were trying to dismantle an unexploded ordnance. It exploded. Sofia suffered multiple shrapnel injuries and almost lost a finger on her right hand. Doctors saved the girl’s life, however, around 50 pieces of shrapnel remain in her body.
Sofia is an energetic and inquisitive child who loves to explore the world around her. She spends hours with her laptop studying online. “I want to go to school because I want to learn everything about this world”, she explains. Sofia’s biggest dream is to become a world-famous ballerina.
This photo is part of an exhibition organized by the ICRC that took place between November and September 2020. The exhibition aimed at drawing public attention to the issue of the situation of children and their access to education in the Donbas conflict zone.
