Ukraine has been our biggest emergency response to date, with 90 doctors, nurses, surgeons, and paramedics sent to provide life-saving medical aid. We first arrived at the conflict on 1 March 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 Hannah at email@example.com or call 0161 521 6859 to let us know what you’re doing and how we can 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.

Born of the NHS, UK-Med is a frontline medical aid charity that is ready to help across the world. Our vision is a world where everyone has the healthcare they need when crises or disasters hit.
In 1988, a team of Manchester clinicians led by UK-Med’s founder Doctor Tony Redmond OBE went to Armenia in aid of those who had been hit by a devastating earthquake.
That was our first emergency medical response, and thirty years later, we are still answering calls for help. Our register has hundreds of NHS medics who are rigorously trained for emergencies. Along with our global network of health professionals, we’re on-call to get to disaster zones at 24 hours’ notice.
With crises becoming more frequent and severe, we help communities get ready for future emergencies and we make sure that what we learn is shared, so people across the world can get the best care.
