EEAI Ukraine Mission 2023, Refugee Support
Dear supporters and followers,
As you read this, thousands of people in Ukraine are fleeing their homes due to the ongoing conflict in the country. The suffering is not over. These refugees have left behind everything they know and love in search of safety and security for themselves and their families. They are in desperate need of our help.
You can make a difference in the lives of these refugees by making a donation to organisations like ours that are working tirelessly to provide them with the essential resources they need to survive. We specifically provide evacuation to the European Union, where we provide food, shelter, medical care, and other basic necessities to those who have been displaced by the conflict.
Your donation, no matter how small, can help provide a sense of hope and comfort to those who have lost everything. It can help provide a warm meal for a hungry child, a safe place to sleep for a family in need, and medical care for those who have been injured in the violence.
We are physically on the ground in Ukraine. We are not a remote-working NGO!
To provide relief, we operate under the fundamental principles of impartiality, independence, and neutrality. (ICRC).
Human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights are the values of the European Union, with the main focus on peace. EEAI will try to contribute to the relief effort for the civilians in Ukraine with a multinational and multidisciplinary team of volunteers and relief workers.
We are providing the capacity through human resources, logistics, equipment, and administration. However, we will not contribute to providing equipment, vehicles, or communication to either conflict party, as this would be a breach of the fundamental principles of humanitarian aid or relief work. We are aware of the responsibility and dangers for our future volunteers entering a high-risk area. We will mitigate these risks as well as the nature of our work allows.
We have two (2) front-line ambulances and one autonomously operating emergency portable treatment centre (with water, heat, and electricity) or operating theatre close to the border with Poland and only 10 hours away from Lviv. If these resources are requested and funded, we will supply them.
We have established or collaborated with local medical providers either on the Polish or Ukrainian side of the border. We are already in contact with people in the Ukraine and Poland.
- Emergency response in the agreed area and admission to the next hospital
- Planned stretcher transports take bedridden people to hospitals or nursing facilities in Poland or Germany.
- Facilitation of patient transport to Europe, Poland, Germany, and Austria
We need a cash flow of about 30,000 euros per month for fuel, consumables, expenses, food, insurance, maintenance, etc.
We have received a commitment of an organisation providing nursing and medical care outside Berlin, that up to 20 beds for care dependent refugees could be made available and if required with additional room to accommodate up to 60 relatives on the same premises. We have already written to the Major of that City to obtain approval in principal.
What comes next:
We need volunteers with different skill sets, such as dual language speakers e.g. German - Ukraine, English - Ukraine, Polish - German- English Ukraine, Multi talented work e.g. mechanic, electricity, Ambulance staff of all grades with driving license C1,
The treatment unit will be painted white and marked with the star of life. The Red Cross is protected and require permission for use. Corporate Donors can have their support logo on the Treatment Center.
Nurses and one physician per team with a licence to practice in an EU member state. We would also appreciate an expression on interest for remote volunteers working from home e.g. Administrators, Social workers, Lawyers, Nurses Health Advisors and very important mental health counselor the volunteers and refugees.
