When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, ordinary citizens sprang into action to provide vital aid and supplies to support Ukraine’s brave defenders. Medics4Ukraine formed as a rapid response group of medical professionals, aid workers and volunteers determined to deliver life-saving medical equipment directly to those risking their lives on the frontlines. This session from the World Extreme Medicine Conference 2023, provides a first-hand account from the dedicated volunteers who have now delivered over £3 million in medical supplies. Witness the dangers they face and the lives they impact as the convoy navigates rubble-strewn roads and damaged infrastructure to reach Ukraine.

As the war continues, with winter setting in, the need for medical aid and humanitarian support only grows. You can support Medics4Ukraine by visiting their GoFundMe page.
