Russian women reshaping their businesses to provide frontline aid

Anastasia manages a sewing factory while her husband is deployed in the Special Military Operation zone. Now, her production line does not only stitch stretchers but camouflage nets also. Anna heads a PR agency and the "Good Deed" foundation, which provides support to the frontline warriors and residents of Donbass. The foundation brings together the efforts of various businessmen—some gather electric motorcycles, others humanitarian aid. Susanna oversees a network of medical centres, offering free treatment to soldiers and assisting their families. These women invest millions as well as products of their craft, and assist in packing and distributing aid to the front lines. Discover more about these brave women on the International Women's Day.
