Ukraine

Medical assistance for hospitals in Ukraine. We send transports with medical supplies to hospitals throughout the country. We save the lives of war victims and patients whose evacuation is impossible.

Why?

Why do we help in Ukraine?

As a result of the ongoing war in Ukraine, over 4,5 million people were forced to flee the country. However, there are still people who cannot be evacuated, and the number of victims of the conflict increased. The warehouses of the medical supply companies are empty - aid for hospitals has to be brought from Poland.


We ensure the uninterrupted operation of Ukrainian hospitals by purchasing and delivering the most urgent medical equipment and medicines necessary to save health and life.

We are constantly working on providing additional support to Ukrainian hospitals. Our next step is to open a field hospital where internally displaced people in Ukraine will be under the care of specialists. The medical team will have at their disposal, among others ambulance and ultrasound, moreover, the hospital will have a separate observation site for patients requiring hospitalization.

"We have never faced a crisis so close to us and so intense. Help is our duty."

How?

How do we help in Ukraine?

We assume long-term activities, thanks to which we will be able to provide help to people with various needs, at various stages.
  • We send medical aid to Ukrainian hospitals. Each facility provides us with detailed information on the needs that they are not able to meet on their own. Based on the collected information, we prepare orders placed in Poland, and then send them by humanitarian transports to the Ukrainian side. The transports mainly consist of dressings, medications, and therapeutic food for newborns
  • At three border crossing points on the Ukrainian side, help is provided by a team consisting of doctors and nurses. They are also helped by paramedics, who have ambulances at their disposal to transport patients in serious condition to hospitals on the Polish side of the border. The points operate in medical containers, and an ambulance for medical interventions is also available. We conduct operations at the border in cooperation with the International Medical Corps.
  • In Kobyłka near Warsaw, in cooperation with Terre des Hommes, we conduct activities aimed at improving the mental state of children with refugee experiences. We provide them with healthy development thanks to various physical activities, language learning, and additional activities that allow them to naturally join the group of their peers.
