David Beckham extends support to Ukraine, hands over his Instagram account to Ukrainian doctor

David Beckham

Former England footballer David Beckham has handed over his official Instagram to a Ukrainian doctor to spread awareness about the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. Russia invaded Ukraine and launched an unscathed attack on the country. Around 900 people have died and 1459 have been wounded, according to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, in the war. The entire world has extended their support to Ukraine, including the entire sporting fraternity.

Meanwhile, Beckham, who has 71 million followers on Instagram, handed his account to Dr. Iryna, who is the head of Kharkiv’s regional perinatal centre and is taking care of mothers and newborn children. The former footballer posted a video on his Instagram account, announcing the development. He also thanked the people for their donations.

“Thanks to your donations, the oxygen generators they have received are helping newborns survive in appalling conditions. Head over to my stories to learn more about the amazing work Iryna and health workers like her are doing to save lives in Ukraine,” Beckham said.

On the other hand, Dr. Iryna also shed light on the chaotic situation in the country when the war broke out. “It was a terrible three hours that we spent together,” Dr. Iryna said.  “Unfortunately, we can’t take babies who are in intensive care to the basement because they rely on life-saving equipment. The first days were the most difficult. We had to learn how to work with bombings and strikes,” she added.
