GLOBAL Response to Death of Liza Dmitrieva in Attack on Vinnytsia, Ukraine

At the Global Down Syndrome Foundation (GLOBAL), we are saddened and horrified by yesterday’s devastating act of violence against the Ukrainian city of Vinnytsia. A missile strike hit the city center and took the lives of 23 innocent Ukrainians, including 4-year-old Liza Dmitrieva, who had Down syndrome. Liza, like so many others tragically lost in this war, had a long, full life ahead of her. Today, GLOBAL joins the world in mourning for Liza and everyone who was killed or injured in this most recent senseless attack. Our hearts go out to Liza’s mother, who was injured, and all those facing profound loss as result of this terrible war.
