British-Ukrainian Aid supports people suffering from the war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine by aligning UK and Ukrainian efforts.
In light of the current events that are taking place in Ukraine our charity has been prioritising medical aid to help the injured and wounded.
We have been receiving dozens of requests and appeals from Ukraine for medical equipment, surgical supplies and resuscitation drugs. A first aid kit is another frequently mentioned item that is in very short supply.
We are currently working in partnership with the Ukrainian Medical Association in the UK (UMAUK). An army of volunteers has joined us in the last few days, they help us with transportation and logistics. We have established a channel delivering any donations from London to the centralised hub in Lviv, one of the western cities which is distributing all the donations. We have been also delivering aid to the southern Ukrainian border.
We are supplying most life-essential medications/equipment, broad-spectrum antibiotics, Octaplex and tranexamic acid as well as other medications used for resuscitation requested by the Ukrainian doctors.
Over the last few days, we’ve established a network of doctors around the UK who are willing to coordinate collection and transportation of any donations to London, Ukrainian school and the Ukrainian Cultural club based in Holland Park London. We have been liaising with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Defence in Ukraine and monitoring the situation regarding critical deficits.
Another new area of our focus are people displaced inside Ukraine as well as refugees fleeing the war. We are collecting and delivering humanitarian aid to a number of hubs on the Polish-Ukrainian and Romanian-Ukrainain borders with the support and in partnership with a number of organisations, such as Bloomberg, Apple, Prudential, to name but a few.
We are very grateful for all the support we receive and urge you to contribute anything you possibly can to help the Ukrainian nation survive the invasion.
