Photographer David raises money for global health through his art

Our fundraisers are going from strength to strength, and today we want to thank David Brims from Fareham, Hampshire. 

David, a retired dentist and avid photographer, raised an incredible £2,400 for UK-Med’s work in Ukraine.  

Speaking on his motivations for supporting our work, David said: “I have a lifelong hatred of bullies, violence and oppression, so the invasion of Ukraine touched these buttons.

“On holiday in Turkey to the same hotel for several years, I met Valari – a Ukrainian lady whose brother had volunteered for the army, and I learnt of the severe problems they faced.  

“Back home, I had already planned an exhibition of my work and decided to dedicate the proceeds to medical aid in Ukraine. The exhibition was a success and I sold 69 framed pictures and raised £2,400. The charity I chose was UK-Med, who deal with real-time urgent medical attention in Ukraine.  

“I have now done something – only a little given the size of the task – but that is better than nothing!” 

We have to disagree – David’s contribution is certainly not ‘little’! Every donation we receive means we can help more and more people get the medical care they urgently need during times of conflict or crisis.
