Hi I'm from Ukraine
sorry for my English, I hope you'll understand me

My friend Aleksandrs has epilepsy
Epilepsy began when his mother died.His father abandoned him after his mother died.
He has no citizenship of our country (Ukraine) because his father was from Latvia so he cant get any financial help in our country.
Now he has 1 epileptic fit/week. His monthly budget for food and medication - $35.
Perhaps there are some funds that help these people? Some site for donations or any other ways to help him?

Hi and welcome to CWE. Hopefully there are some people here from your part of the world who can respond, as financial assistance (if available) typically has to come from the country of residence or country of birth. Good luck to you and your friend.
