My name is Lester, I am a Paramedic from Cornwall whom works for Kernow Health Out of Hours Doctors Service. I'm sure you have been horrified by the images from Ukraine. Millions of people have fled their home, often on foot travelling hundreds of miles in arduous conditions, arriving at the border traumatised and exhausted, mostly children, women and the elderly. I wanted to provide direct assistance to these people to ensure they are well enough to continue their onward journey. As such, this Friday I will be travelling to Uzhhorod, Ukraine for three weeks to provide medical assistance at a refugee centre. I am raising money to help with travel expenses and essential equipment which will be left when I leave. No money will be used for accommodation (will be in a tent) or food. Any excess money will be donated to a suitable charitable organisation. I know it is a difficult time financially for everyone, so any donations would be gratefully received.
Thanks for your help
