Due to the catastrophic medical care situation in Ukraine, the Community of Interest of Northeastern Switzerland Rescue Services (IG NORD) has decided to offer help, activating its network and collecting medical material for the care of injured people. An “ad hoc” fundraising campaign among paramedics and rescue organizations was also launched to purchase needed materials. Private as well as supplier networks were also activated, which have meanwhile generated the second aid deliveries in the amount of 8-10 pallets of medical aid material each. This could include material for surgical interventions, wound care, material for immediate traumatological treatment (hemostasis), infusions, medications and injection material, hygienic protective material and much more.
Association “Humanitarian Emergency Aid Ukraine” now takes over the logistics and brings the collected relief supplies to where they are needed.
Northeastern Swiss rescue services with REGA carry out collection campaign. Medical supplies are the focus here.
