Zaporizhzhia is now back on everyone’s radar. Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia region in south-eastern Ukraine has recently came under fire again.
In this war-torn region, there is a large influx of internally displaced persons and the need for humanitarian aid is enormous.
ISHR would like to support the supply of life-saving medicines at a time when the medical and logistics infrastructures are under increasing pressure.
In total, our team on the ground plans to deliver enough supplies to help 7,500 patients (IDPs, disabled persons, children, elderly people, etc.) in this war-torn and remote area.
In particular, primary health care centres and health facilities must be provided with medicines and other medical supplies.
On July 5, 2022, we were able to provide primary health care centre No. 9 in Zaporizhzhia with nine NCD (noncommunicable disease) kits containing medicines and medical equipment for the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and hypertension for about 180 patients.
On August 2, 2022, we were able to deliver 18 large boxes of medicines and medical equipment – enough to treat almost 400 patients – to Ambulance Station No. 3 in Vilniansk (small town, situated about 50 km from the nuclear plant) and to the primary health care centre in the village of Petro-Mikhailivka near Vilniansk.
