HUMANITARIAN AID: COVID-19
Since the first wave of the epidemic, in 2020, the AICM Foundation has mobilized its donors, volunteers, and medical experts to help hospitals that have been particularly affected by COVID-19.
Developed 3 areas of work:
- Study of the needs of COVID-19 hospitals and organization of care, in particular in the conflict zone. The level of work of resuscitators and their need for additional training.
- Thanks to the support of the Federal Republic of Germany, the United Nations (UHF) and private and institutional donors, AICM provided more than 20 million hryvnias of the most urgent materials in 2020/2021: ventilators, oxygen concentrators, monitors, sterilizers, defibrillators, and also, first of all, mobile digital radiological systems and portable ultrasound devices.
- Taking advantage of the 4/5 month delay between the epidemic in France and Ukraine, French doctors have been providing Ukrainian hospitals with their experience of intensive care and screening since the summer of 2020. These online trainings with simultaneous translation were organized by the AICM Foundation.
For the sake of neutrality, the AICM Foundation directed 20% of this funding to the territory of Luhansk, which is not under the control of the government, and opened an online training for its specialists.
In 2022, the AICM Foundation intends to continue to help COVID hospitals through 5 funding projects totaling UAH 40 million.
