Announcement of the second phase of the Ukraine Trauma First Aid Project

Having more than doubled the original fundraising target of £5,000 the project provided partial funding for a specialist pre-hospital trauma medic to head to the region to provide medical training.

Funds are now in place to allow the project to implement a second phase, in which Fluid Mind will travel to Ukraine with a group of partners to provide a greater level of medical aid and also provide care and support for displaced children.

During this second phase Fluid Mind will be joined by several partner organisations including the Veterans’ Army, The Teddy Trust and Stewart Brewing. Stewart Brewing is a Scottish brewing company who is donating profits from their sales of their “Resist” Stout to the cause. The expedition will further heighten awareness of the project and support the operational logistics.

They will also be working closely with the charity ‘The Teddy Trust’ to provide dedicated aid to the children affected by the conflict. Once they have reached their destination, Fluid Mind will train people in critical pre-hospital trauma care skills and distribute equipment provided by CambCol and CitizenAID.

Within the next week the group will travel to a refugee camp near Lviv with over 100 prehospital trauma packs to help those that are injured and to train as many people as possible how to use them. They will also be bringing nearly 1000 teddy bears as a part of their effort to care for the children who have been driven from their homes.

The initial expeditions were made possible by the donations given to the Ukraine Trauma First Aid Project crowdfunder page, but with every additional donation, more work can be done to help those that are most affected by the conflict. The crowdfunder can be accessed by following this link:
