New medical devices in Hajnówka

2021-12-22 11:43:37

 

The situation on the Polish-Belarussian border was dubbed a major humanitarian crisis, with refugees stranded on the so-called "no man's land" in the forests surrounding the town of Hajnówka. Many of these people suffered from serious injuries caused by fatigue, violence, or exposure. The local hospital took in many patients requiring urgent medical help and struggled to accommodate the rise in demand for some of the most basic equipment such as beds, pulse oximeters, thermometers. In addition, the hospital staff addressed the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to ask for medical devices.
