We Have the Ability

Dima leads We Have the Ability, an initiative that improves the lives of the elderly by providing free medical equipment and services. Medical students and recent medical school graduates volunteer to provide elderly persons with free checkups, physiotherapy and speech therapy sessions, nutrition advice, surgeries, and other services. The initiative also distributes eyeglasses and dentures. In the coming year, Dima seeks to reach at least 500 elderly persons.
