“The winter will be a threat for millions and millions of Ukraine people. I have seen it. In fact, now the temperature is hovering around zero degrees Celsius. But soon it will plummet down to -20. Right now there is a blackout in the whole city and the whole oblast. How can hospital function without electricity? How can maternity wards function without incubators vaccine storage, without fridges? So we really have to anticipate urgently the needs. I'm very grateful to President Macron and President Zelenskyi for organizing the conference in December in Paris on winterization. What are the concrete needs to anticipate during the winter?”

We are very grateful that we have not been left alone since the first day of the war. Our country has developed a system that allows us to deliver healthcare and evacuate patients who can’t be treated here. We are sincerely grateful to the state, regional and city organizations, as well as to all European and American countries that support us. Thank you, thank you very much!”
