Own report: Pope Francis visits child refugees in Ukraine He made a surprise visit to the Vatican Children’s Hospital in Rome. Since the start of the war, 50 Ukrainian children have been treated at Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital. At present 19 children are being treated in this hospital. In one photo, the pope is talking to a child with a bandage on his head and a tube around his neck. Very touching scene.
According to the Vatican, some of the children had problems with neurology and cancer. Others were injured in the ‘fatal explosion’. “Let’s pray for them (the children),” the pope said in a church speech Saturday. The Russian offensive in Ukraine ended on Sunday, the 25th day. As a result, children and women are suffering more casualties. On the other hand, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says that 90 percent of those who have left Ukraine are women and children.
Meanwhile, 61 children have been evacuated from the northeastern city of Sumi. They took refuge in the basement for two weeks to escape Russian shelling. It is known that their age is below four years. They were rescued from the Sumir Care Home and evacuated from the battlefield by a humanitarian corridor.
