The conflict in eastern Ukraine continues, taking a heavy toll on both sides.

Political attempts to find a solution are making little progress, and those living along the frontline bear the brunt of the violence. 

In February 2017, Swiss cartoonist Felix Schaad travelled with MSF to eastern Ukraine to document the humanitarian situation.

MSF runs mobile clinics along the frontline, providing psychological and medical support to people living in the areas controlled by the Ukrainian government, including those who are displaced.

Felix helped us bring light to our #NotATarget initiative, documenting that during the conflict many health centres have been destroyed by artillery and air raids, causing staff to flee and medical care for thousands to collapse.
