Why is it important?

Ihor Popudin, born in 1991, Pervomaysk, Mykolaiv. He was mobilized on March 10,2014 as part of compulsory military service.
On June 27, Ihor, a paratrooper in the 79th Airborne Brigade, was wounded near Karachun Mountain in Sloviansk. Ihor received an explosive eye injury. The diagnosis of the Hirshman Clinic in Kharkіv: penetrating wound of the cornea, iris prolapse, traumatic cataract of the right eye, sclera penetrating wound with deposition of the vitreous of the left eye.
Ihor was treated in hospitals in Kyiv, Odesa and Mykolaiv. An operation performed at the Filatov clinic on July 30 removed shell shatters, a fractioned eye lens and other debris.

Where does the money go?

To restore sight to his right eye a triple surgery needs to be performed: keratoplasty, vitrectomy and iris plastics. Along with that the fighter has glaucoma which he treats himself, using four to eight types of eye drops.
Ihor came under the advice of Professor Shaflik in Poland and Professor Kroytser in Munich. According to the Kyiv "Center of Eye Microsurgery" the keratoplasty is recommended to be performed in a сliniс in Linz, Austria.

The cost of surgery in Linz, Austria – 14,904.92 EUR
