Urgent Health Needs Extend Beyond Ukraine’s Borders
A crisis is emerging in the shadow of conflict across Ukraine, one that extends beyond the country’s borders. Ukraine’s already stressed healthcare system is buckling under the weight of expectation and medical needs as people continue fleeing conflict areas seeking safety. The Red Cross is working around the clock to address needs far greater than what’s visible to the eye.
“We know it’s possible to prevent a secondary crisis, but no one organization or entity can do it alone,” said Xavier Castellanos Mosquera, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Under Secretary General.
