Two mobile computed tomography scans arrived in Kyiv
The mobile units, each consisting of a truck, a computer tomography scan (CT) installed in a special container, and a power generator on a trailer, have a total value of almost two million euros. The urgently needed medical cutting-edge technology is intended for civilian use in Kyiv, Ukraine, and was provided by ADRA Germany.
The medical equipment will be used by two municipal non-profit hospitals in Kyiv – a general hospital and a children’s hospital. It’s total value is 1,935,590 euros.
The two mobile CT scans were handed over at the beginning of June by Christian Molke, Country director of ADRA Deutschland e.V. and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V. The city of Kyiv was represented by a former State Secretary Dr. Bogdan Balasynovych, who acts on behalf of the Mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko.
»Everyone involved was aware that with this help, every day counts to save lives that have been damaged, in particular, by warlike violence in Ukraine. With this in mind, everyone involved worked together quickly, flexibly, and in a solution-oriented manner,« said Christian Molke.
Two days before the handover, Dr. Balasynovych was a guest of honor at the 116th session of the Bavarian Parliament and was warmly welcomed there by the President of the Bavarian Parliament, Ilse Aigner.
ADRA emergency aid in Ukraine is supported by many international volunteers, donors from Germany, and funds from Aktion Deutschland Hilft. In addition, ADRA Deutschland e.V. works with the Federal Foreign Office to support more than 50,000 refugees in Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Moldova with food packages, hygiene items, and cash.
