The Need: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused a massive humanitarian crises in the Ukraine and a flood of refugees into neighboring countries such as Poland, Slovakia and Moldova. Men are on the frontlines while the women and children escape to the border regions. This medical and humanitarian project will benefit civilians and volunteers with low level casualty care and relief aid. 90% of casualties in war zones die before reaching medical treatment. It is therefore vital that civilians are aware of mortality risks immediately following injury and are trained in how to spot and treat such injuries.
The Solution: The situation is critical and we are working with medical teams as a first response to those injured, while getting in medical supplies such as medicines, and bandages etc. The course includes a 3-hour component that will focus on the immediate need to control hemorrhagic bleeding and clear an airway as part of the Team Medic Course, which is part of a more comprehensive 5-day course that sustains life until hospital care can be reached.
The project plans to achieve the following:
· Taking volunteers from zero medication knowledge to front line medical provision
· This training needs to take place in country.
· Medical kits will be taken to the border regions which will then be taken overland into Ukraine to join up for training (on border and inside Ukraine)
· Humanitarian and Relief Aid
Shai Fund is raising funds to help Ukrainian families with urgent food, shelter, medical response and evacuation. We will provide aid to those who are still in the Ukraine working through local churches, and those who have already fled to neighboring countries.
