Clerics and believers of the UOC in Kherson donated medicines to a surgery department, a centre for mothers and children, large families, low-income people and refugees.
The Kherson Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has handed over medicines to medical institutions, large families, low-income families and refugees who suffered from military operations, reports the UOC eparchy on its website.
