A SOLIHULL automotive company have donate two SUV’s to Warwickshire Charity Ambulance Aid which will be used for humanitarian tasks in Ukraine.
The first SUV will be delivered by Ambulance Aid volunteers, along with an ex NHS ambulance. Both will be packed with critical medical supplies.
Ambulance Aid, a not-for-profit organisation, run by volunteers has already fundraised and delivered four ambulances to Ukraine, with the assistance of Medical Aid Ukraine – West Midlands.
The vehicles will be handed over at the Polish Ukraine border to the United Ukraine Foundation who will drive them to where needed most in Ukraine.
Local GP, Dr Tania Hebert, the West Midlands coordinator for Medical Aid Ukraine (MAU) said: “From my daily contact with our teams in Ukraine, the situation is getting worse. Bombs continue to rain down on cities in the East and South, volunteers are struggling to reach the wounded to get them to safety. There’s a severe lack of transport to evacuate women, children, and the elderly. Vehicles including ambulances, smaller SUVs and 4×4 vehicles are desperately needed.”
“This generous donation from IM Group comes at a crucial time; most of the world has moved on from Ukraine so aid and support is drying up; they have remembered our country is still crying out for help. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their kindness.”
Martin Dolton, Director at IM Group said: “‘Many of us at IM have connections with Ukraine whether it be personal or through business, nevertheless the suffering brought upon the civilian population in this conflict is beyond our imagination especially in the 21st century. We hope that our donation will in some small way help some of those people through the outstanding work of Ambulance Aid. ’
