People with disabilities are left behind in the maelstrom of the war in Ukraine.

Hiroshi Ueno, 72, a former international relations adviser for Kyosaren, a Japanese organisation for people with disabilities, translated testimonies from local families and began to disseminate them in order to convey the devastating situation of people with disabilities in Ukraine, where the military invasion by Russia is continuing. The reality is that even if they want to escape, they cannot bear the burden of travel and have no choice but to stay. The heartbreaking words reveal a war that sacrifices those who are in the weakest position.
