“WE DO EXIST”: The Will to Live. The Story of Anna Khmurina

Shooting of the documentary “WE DO EXIST” by Production Studio “HEADMEDIA,” which began on February 15, 2016, as part of the initiative “Feel by Yourself,” initiated by the PU “Civic Guard” and NGO “Bridge Ukraine-EU” continues.

Hero of the next story from Svitlovodsk is a 48-year-old Anna Khmurina. She was born without any deviations. Then there was a kindergarten, school, university, and a profession of a teacher in math. A simple rheumatism made terrible changes in life – a number of complications and as a result – a wheelchair.

There is nothing to talk about accessibility in our country, however. For twelve years she could not get out of her apartment due to high stairs and narrow elevator. Absence of ramps, call buttons and other social “benefits” of the civilized world influenced much the life of Anna Khmurina. But despite this, Anna continues to live and enjoy life, attend courses of foreign languages and handmade craft, and help students study math.
