Older people in Ukraine are in need of warmth in the face of harsh winter

Alena Karimova, 41, is a HelpAge social worker, based in Lviv in western Ukraine. She regularly visits and supports 18 older people, evacuated from the East because of the war. She talks about how hard life is for everyone in Ukraine because of the cold winter weather and lack of power and electricity, caused by Russian attacks against energy infrastructure.
