Doctors, volunteers, government and business representatives, and caring people from all over the world expressed their support and helped our country by sending cargoes of food, medicines, hygiene products and even medical equipment. For example, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Clinical Center for Palliative Care received support from Germany from Ludger Prinz, head of the Johannes Hospice, and Andreas Stähli, head of the Johannes Hospice Palliative Care Academy in Munster.

This was announced by Ihor Dmytrenko, Director of the Health Department of the Regional State Administration.

According to the head of the regional hospital, Iryna Slugotska, this is not the first delivery of humanitarian aid from German colleagues to their institution. The hospices in Ivano-Frankivsk and Munster have been building a good partnership since 2017. The Johannes Hospice has repeatedly provided and organized the transportation of functional beds to Ukraine in peacetime and continues to help during the war with the Russian aggressor.

This time, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Clinical Center for Palliative Care received not only functional beds, but also roll mattresses, bedding sets, bandages, diapers for children and adults, an infusion machine, patient monitors, food and much more.

The Association of Hospice and Palliative Care in Germany also promptly raised funds for this assistance.

It is worth noting that, in addition to humanitarian aid, the partnership includes several educational projects aimed at training in palliative care and the exchange of nursing staff between Munster and Ivano-Frankivsk.

Ihor Dmytrenko and the director of the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Clinical Center for Palliative Care expressed their sincere gratitude to their colleagues from Germany for their help and support, especially in this difficult time of Ukraine’s heroic confrontation with the Russian enemy.
