UNHCR: 700 schools and 150 hospitals damaged in Donbas

This is reported by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

"At least 700 schools have been damaged since the start of the conflict, including 55 schools directly impacted since the beginning of the year," the UNHCR report says.

In addition, at least 40 communities residing near the dividing line have limited access to medical services. Some 150 healthcare facilities have been damaged since the start of the conflict, and medical personnel have also left the area.

As noted, displacement has affected vulnerable groups the most.

“More than 50,000 people with disabilities were forced to flee their homes. Besides access to services, they often face additional difficulties and discrimination,” the report reads.
