NI walk raises funds for Ukrainian frostbite victim

27/02/2005 - 17:50:56

A sponsored walk has raised thousands of pounds for a young Ukrainian woman who lost both legs to frostbite in Northern Ireland last Christmas.

More than 100 people took part in the walk in Co Derry to help raise funds for Oksana Sukhanova, the 23-year-old migrant worker who became homeless in Ballymoney.

The event was organised by the Saint Vincent de Paul. Oksana is currently being treated at Musgrave Hospital, where she's being fitted with new artificial limbs.
