"We Are Never Sure if We Will Return Alive"
26.12.2016 20:20

Elizaveta Glinka, widely known as Doctor Liza has perished in crash of a government-owned jetliner Tu-154 near Sochi.

      The head of the Human Rights Council, Mikhail Fedotov has confirmed that famous philanthropist Elizabeth Glinka, the CEO of the International public organization Fair Aid was on board of the Tu-154 aircraft, which crashed into the Black Sea on December 25. She was on her way to bring medicines to a university hospital in Latakia, Syria.

      For many Russians Elizaveta Glinka — Doctor Liza — has long become the embodiment of kindness, compassion and mercy.

      "The mind just cannot grasp it that she is not there with us any longer. The heart cannot believe it. Until the lst moment we hoped for a miracle. And she  was a miracle herself, a heavenly message of virtue" — Mr. Fedotov comments.

      At the beginning of December  she was handed in the State Award 2016 for outstanding achievements in the field of charitable and human rights activities.

      "The most important right is the right to life. In these hard times it has been ruthlessly derided. It breaks my heart to see the killed and wounded children of Donbass, as well as the diseased and murdered children of Syria" - she pointed out.

      At the awarding ceremony she also told about her plans to go on a humanitarian mission to Donbass and then to Syria.

      "We are never sure if we will return alive because the war is hell on the Earth, and I know what I am talking about. But we are sure that goodness, compassion and mercy work in ways more powerful than any weapon" - Doctor Liza concluded her speech at the award ceremony.
