“I am Sofia, a little Ukrainian. I lost my arm, my mother, and my cat in Bucha”
“I am Sofia, a little Ukrainian. I lost my arm, my mother, and my cat in Bucha. I am one of about 910 children who suffered because of Russia.”
This is a message from Sofia, who has been living in the hospital for the last three months. Although she is in safe Rome now, a girl shudders at every sound and fears planes.
She feels phantom pain. When she is worried, not only her non-existent hand hurts but also all over her body.
Before the Russian invasion, Sofia did equestrian sports, but now she is not sure if it would be possible in the future again. She dreams of having a prosthesis. It will help her reduce the pain and even be able to do routine, like dressing herself.
