We’ve been able to use our global network to effectively deliver aid directly into Ukraine throughout the conflict.

Beginning with a £100,000 fundraising appeal, and masterminded by a team of extreme medical experts drawing on previous experience of running medical convoys into conflict zones, we’ve successfully delivered over a million pounds worth of trauma supplies directly to the front line.

Alongside these aid deliveries, the Zelensky government has also asked us to deliver a pilot trauma training course, utilising our skills and expertise where it matters most.
