Almost one year after the start of the war in Ukraine, the humanitarian crisis continues to worsen. The displacement of civilians and the overall humanitarian needs are enormous. According to the UN, more than 7.9 million people have left the country to seek safety and refuge in other countries. Additionally, at least 6 million people are believed to have been displaced within Ukraine.

In the current program, Cadus is focusing on complementing existing MedEvac capacities and provides medical training to local professionals and volunteers. As a staff member in this project, doctors, nurses and paramedics work together with staff from our local partner organizations within the field of medical evacuations.
