Seven-Year-Old Dima Lost His Parents in Mariupol. They Covered Him With Their Bodies During One of the Artillery Strikes
By Documentary Planet
Seven-year-old Dima lost his parents in Mariupol. They covered him with their bodies during one of the artillery strikes. He barely survived, was found by Russian soldiers and moved to a social centre in the Donetsk People’s Republic. His first words after weeks of silence were: “It is quiet here. In Mariupol, they fire really hard”.
There are 17 children in the centre. Some of them were rescued from the frontlines of the Donetsk region and Mariupol by volunteers. The new documentary follows one of those volunteer groups that deliver humanitarian aid every ten days to ‘hot areas’ and evacuates families stuck in basements during shelling. Find out what stories they are told.
