The average life expectancy of Russian men dropped from 62 to 59 in 1993 and is now 13 years below that of US males, according to charity organisation World Help. Medical supplies are urgently required in eastern Europe as economic changes lead to serious shortages at hospitals and orphanages, the organisation says. World Help has shipped over $1 million worth of donated supplies to the region in the last 20 months, including blood product and woundcare accessories worth $300,000 from US company Gainor Medical in February.
