Pope Francis visit Ukrainian children in Vatican Hospital

Pope Francis arrived in the Vatican’s Bambino Gesù Pediatric Hospital to visit a group of Ukrainian children receiving treatment after fleeing the war in their country.

Ukrinform reports this with reference to Vatican News.

Around 50 children have arrived from Ukraine - 19 of whom are hospitalized - to receive quality care. The children are receiving treatment for various pathologies, including in the oncology and neurology departments.

"The Pope stopped in the rooms, and visited all the little ones present, before returning to the Vatican," the report says.

The war with Russian invaders has been going on in Ukraine since February 24. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, conducting massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
