Nikita was just 18 months old when his mother took him in her arms and brought him to a clinic in Eastern Ukraine in the hope that the “Irish doctors” would soon return to fix her son’s little heart. Nikita was born with a congenital defect that surgeons call “Chernobyl Heart”.

Little Nikita’s grandfather, Alexander, was just one of the 700,000 volunteers known as the “liquidators” who entered the contamination zone in the days and weeks after the disaster in an effort to contain the radiation pouring from the exploded reactor. Alexander’s daughter was born with a heart defect, and now his grandson was also born with a heart defect known as “Chernobyl Heart”.

Sadly, Nikita and his family have paid the price for his grandfather courage and bravery, which potentially saved the lives of thousands.

Nikita is now recovering from his open heart surgery, and his future is bright and full of hope, thanks to the generosity of the Irish public. To donate to our Cardiac “Flying Doctors” Programme, follow the link below
