Siberia's Rolling Clinic

Siberian villages are often isolated and medical provision can only be provided by train. Using five hospital trains, the Russian government tries to ensure basic medical care for people living in Siberia's wilderness.

The trains are well equipped with everything from surgery rooms to modern laboratories. "Saint Luke" is the name of the train we joined for two weeks to travel through a world where winter lasts nine months. It’s even got a church carriage. On the way, we meet people who live simply and work hard and accompany doctors who go way beyond the call of duty to help as many people as possible
