Ukraine has been our biggest emergency response to date, with dozens of UK-Med doctors, nurses, surgeons, and paramedics sent to provide life-saving medical aid. At present, our country programme employs 50 humanitarians, mostly national Ukrainian staff, to maintain our life-saving medical work. We first arrived at the conflict on 1 March 2022 and have been providing care on the ground ever since. As the situation has evolved, so has our work.
We are delivering a wide range of medical aid across the country, including:
We were able to hit the ground running in Ukraine because of your support. If you are able to, please donate to our Emergency Respond Fund today to make sure we can provide healthcare for those affected by outbreaks, conflict and disasters in Ukraine and across the world.
Your donation can ensure our health clinics provide direct care and support for vulnerable people.
We’re running health clinics where we have direct care available for the thousands of children, women and men – especially the elderly – who have found refuge here.
Because our Register of almost 1000 health professionals are so specialist and diverse, we can uniquely provide any type of support; from primary healthcare, to trauma surgery.
A Primary Health Care Kit (imagine a ‘walking Pharmacy’) has everything needed to provide care for 10,000 people over three months.
This is crucial as our medics care for people with a huge range of needs; asthmatic children without their inhalers, expectant and new mothers needing neonatal and maternal care, and people with burns, infections, cuts and other injuries from the conflict.
We’re providing training and support for the national health staff across the country who have stayed to care for their people.
We’ve heard of the difficult cases staff here have dealt with in recent weeks and have been helping them prepare for challenging cases to come. We’re delivering a range of specialist training – from mass casualty, to CBRN (Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear) training.
In the unlikely event that we raise more money than we can efficiently spend on our humanitarian activities in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, all surplus donations will be directed to our Emergency Response Fund for responding to international disasters, crises and health emergencies.
In emergencies, circumstances can change unexpectedly making it impractical or impossible to carry out the purpose of the appeal. In these circumstances, money raised will be directed to our Emergency Response Fund.
If you’d like to hold a fundraiser – whether that’s yourself, through your school, community group, workplace, or with friends – we’d love to hear from you!
Please get in touch with our team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 140 9984 to let us know how you’d like to help.
Unfortunately, that’s not something we can accept at the moment.
Giving money is the best thing you can do. Donations of money enable UK-Med to respond quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
