AMAR International Charity Foundation is mobilized to support Ukrainian families, children
and refugees currently moving across the Romanian border. With an extensive network of
schools, teachers, and mayors in Romania, AMAR not only provides care and expertise, but also
fills specific medical needs for special needs schools in both Ukraine and Romania.
According to a recent United Nations report, more than half a million Ukrainian refugees are in
Romania; the great majority are women and children.
As the fighting intensifies, more Ukrainian refugees need emergency medical aid. We have been
asked by two hospitals in Ukraine to obtain drugs and medical equipment which can be
purchased in Romania and transported to West Ukraine.
The mayor of Sighetu Marmatiei, a trusted friend of AMAR, is in contact with these hospitals
and has collated an initial list of their urgent operational requirements.
Most immediate needs:
- Heavy duty first aid/trauma kits
- Bandages, hemostatic/burn dressings
- Wound dressings
- Hydrogel, foam, alginate, iodine, hydrocolloid, and medical grade honey dressings
- Chest decompression equipment for pneumothorax treatment
- Emergency treatment mats
- Thermal and regular blankets
The hospitals also need additional emergency supplies of specific drugs.
AMAR is also working across the Ukrainian border with help from the Sighetu Marmatiei
School for Children with Special Needs (handicapped mentally and physically) in Romania, as
well as another special needs school in Ukraine.
The schools need clothes, bedding, and food for these children. The border is still open, so
goods can be transported from Romania into Ukraine. AMAR teams will quickly utilize all
funds given to them.
Baroness Nicholson, AMAR’s founder, stated, “The situation for Ukrainian refugee children is
dire. They face uncertainty, vulnerability, and hardship, let alone compromised access to
medical aid and basic nutrition. Our trained and caring network stands ready to help them as a
sanctuary from the ruthlessness of war. We desperately need more resources and money to buy
simple provisions and medicine. Please help these children now.
