In May 2022, we started a new project to support refugees / displaced persons in Lviv.
The project consists in reimbursing the purchase of medicines for the elderly, the lonely and the disabled who were forced to flee the eastern part of Ukraine. These people, while in Western Ukraine, depend almost entirely on humanitarian aid.
In May 2022, we started a project in the Chernihiv Oblast, in areas covered by military operations in February 2024 as a result of Russian aggression. We are implementing this project in cooperation with the Ukrainian Chamber of Pharmacists.
On March 3, 2022 in Katowice, less than a week after the Russian attack on Ukraine, pharmacist Rafał Hechmann, the founder of the farmaceuci.org (means pharmacists in Polish) initiative, together with a group of volunteer pharmacists opened the first pharmaceutical aid point for Ukrainian refugees in Katowice. At that time approximately 140 thousand refugees were entering Poland EVERY DAY.
In May 2022, farmaceuci.org launched two more projects in Ukraine.
