Advent portfolio company Aareon Group has made a €25,000 donation to Médecins Sans Frontières, supporting its emergency response to the war in Ukraine.
The organization provides medical assistance to those affected by wars, epidemics and other disasters throughout the world. It is in contact with hospitals throughout Ukraine, offering much-needed supplies and training wherever they are most needed.
In places such as Kyiv, Odessa and Lviv, Médecins Sans Frontières has been training medics to prepare for mass casualty incidents and treat war wounds. It has sent experienced emergency and specialist staff to support its existing teams in Ukraine, and is also using telemedicine to provide remote training in areas such as trauma care.
The organization has also ramped up its presence in the countries surrounding Ukraine, including Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. Its emergency teams are monitoring medical needs at the Ukrainian-Polish border, and visiting crossing points, transit centers and temporary shelters throughout the region.
