The Polish Medical Mission (PMM), in the face of the scale of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, regularly sends supplies to the hospitals operating there, and its employees work to ensure their functioning so that they can save the lives of all those in need. The next very important task to be carried out by the Polish Medical Mission is the opening of a field hospital.
- The field hospital will allow us to act in emergencies and respond to the ongoing Ukrainian crisis. It is also one of the most important tools for providing medical support that we will be able to use in the future and engage in specialist assistance in the event of other conflicts, says Ewa Piekarska-Dymus, president of the board of the Polish Medical Mission. It is estimated that about PLN 300,000 is needed for this purpose - the action involves the purchase of tents and field furniture, as well as equipping the facility with basic equipment, drugs, and medical devices.
To help open a field hospital in Ukraine, the Ziko for Health Foundation donated PLN 200,000 for this purpose. Moreover, in order to collect the full amount needed for the hospital, the organization appeals to both private individuals and companies to donate funds for the creation of a field hospital. The first entrepreneurs associated with the Association of Entrepreneurs of the City of Kraków, Biznes Klub, have already joined the action, declaring support in the amount of several dozen thousand zlotys. The Ziko for Health Foundation will inform about the involvement of specific companies in the creation of the field hospital on an ongoing basis in its communication channels.
The Foundation also receives donations from individuals who, to the best of their abilities, support the ideas of establishing and operating a field hospital in Ukraine.
- The goal of our Foundation is to protect health and help those in need. We have always pursued this goal among friends and donors who supported us in their activities. We would like to thank all the people and companies who, together with our Foundation, wanted to contribute to the construction of a field hospital - says Beata Kmieć, member of the board of the Ziko for Health Foundation.
