Conflict in Ukraine

We have all been shocked and saddened by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and deeply concerned about the repercussions not just for those who live there, but also for those in other countries who may be drawn into this crisis as it evolves

ICMDA is resourcing Christian doctors and dentists throughout Ukraine through our member body the Christian Medical Association of Ukraine (CMA) to care for the wounded, displaced and homeless, serve in frontline health facilities and act as a portal to provide drugs, consumables and equipment to hospitals and health centres.

We are also supporting Christian doctors and dentists in surrounding countries as they provide medical supplies and offer protection, care and support to refugees.

Emergency Appeal

The proceeds of this appeal will go toward resourcing and supporting Christian doctors, dentists and other health professionals providing medical care and other aid to those affected by the war in Ukraine.

Please give generously. We will provide regular updates about the situation as it develops and how the resources are being used.

In the UK we are also asking for volunteer doctors and nurses within the Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF) to collect surplus medical supplies from hospitals, GP surgeries and suppliers. We have established a supply route to sort and dispatch these to the Christian Medical Association of Ukraine. Click here to apply to be a volunteer.

Please continue to pray with us for God's wisdom, protection and compassion.
