We are grateful for the support and offers of help for our palliative care colleagues and friends in Ukraine. After discussion by members of the global palliative care community, we recognise that the most urgent need is currently for supplies and funds to purchase essential medical equipment, medications, and supplies.
We have considered options on the best way to help with these needs, given the challenging and rapidly evolving dynamics on the ground. For many reasons we believe that the best support would be through donations via the following agencies with an active humanitarian presence in the region:
- International Committee of the Red Cross
- Doctors without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
We know that our palliative colleagues in Ukraine will require our help and support in the weeks, months and years to come. When this help is needed, we trust that the global palliative care community is ready and willing to provide more targeted support to palliative groups in their challenging journey to restore essential palliative care services.
