CAPTION: Stella is at an age where she likes to grab new things and take a closer look. Her milk teeth are now fully developed; one of these will have to be removed when she has her operation. "Healthcare hasn't been free for me", her mother Armena says. "For every procedure related to my pregnancy and giving birth, I've had to pay. Often, it was hard. For example, I delayed my sonography [ultrasound] because we simply didn't have enough money". LOCATION: Volgograd, Russia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Stella Aharonyan.
