Emergency Response in Ukraine
Target country/region: Ukraine
Period: from February 2022
Short description: Our medical team is in Ukraine evacuating patients* from endangered areas to safe hospitals in Western Ukraine or neighboring countries. We also support with the delivery of medical material.
Since March 2022, we are in Ukraine with ambulances, evacuating patients in Ukraine and to the European Union. By transferring them to hospitals outside the war zone, treatment and care can be ensured.
We are working to bring even more vehicles and teams into the field for transport.
Meanwhile, we have sent three aid deliveries to Ukraine. Together with Greenpeace, we have sent medical equipment for wound care and general medicine, among other things, on its way from Berlin.
We have been in constant contact with local actors and international organizations since the beginning of the Russia-Ukraine war to coordinate our relief activities.
