100 days aiding Ukraine – see the movie
Medycyna Praktyczna, June 14, 2022
On the tenth day, they start to smile a little
They stand in groups, talk in low voices, and smoke cigarettes. First thought: "How dirty, dusty. Well, they came from the front, after all." Up close, it turns out that it is not dirt but fatigue. We look at the faces of soldiers who brought their wounded colleagues to the hospital, gray with exhaustion. We brought medical equipment - in one box there is a mobile X-ray machine, in two more boxes are external fixation systems.
Donations by the numbers
We collected the first PLN 100,000 in two days. The largest payment so far was PLN 540,288. We sent eight shipments to hospitals in Ukraine, the most recent one this past week.
How do we support Ukraine
It is impossible to overestimate how much actions supporting Ukrainian hospitals and emergency medical units operating within the zone of the military aggression are needed. Aid in this respect is mainly administered by the government institutions. However, even with the best coordination of efforts, the Polish and international aid action will not be sufficient in the dynamically evolving situation in Ukraine.
