What does EMERGENCY do?
EMERGENCY provides free, high-quality, long-term sustainable healthcare to victims of war, poverty and landmines, alongside building hospitals and training local medical staff. Founded in 1994, EMERGENCY has treated over 11 million people in 18 different countries and currently operates in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Italy, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Uganda.
EMERGENCY UK Volunteers
We are a group of volunteers who have decided to give their spare time, creativity and enthusiasm to support EMERGENCY UK because we believe that, today more than ever, we need a collective humanitarian effort in order to fight for a just world and promote a culture of peace.
So far we have organised fundraising dance events, online campaigns, market stalls, sport challenges and much more.
This year we are supporting the Kabul Surgical Centre that opened in April 2001 as a Surgical Centre for Victims of War and Landmines and currently, remains the only free specialist hospital for war surgery in the capital and surrounding provinces
All of this would not be possible without your donation so, we really want to thank you for making this possible.
If you are also thinking of volunteering with us or you are simply curious about the group please contact us through the website and we will be happy to give you more information about us and our activities.
Thank you again for your support,
The EMERGENCY UK volunteers.
Here’s the difference your support could make:
- £5 is enough to pay for a whole day of meals for one of our hospital patients in Sierra Leone.
- £25 is enough to pay for the medicine a hospitalised child needs in our Neonatal Intensive Care Ward in Afghanistan.
- £100 is enough to pay for one year of post-operative therapy for a patient having heart valve replacement surgery in Sudan.
- £750 is enough to pay for a prosthetic rehabilitation in Iraq for the loss of someone’s leg above the knee.
- £2,500 is enough to fully run a First Aid Post for one month in rural areas of Afghanistan, meaning victims of landmines in even remote locations can still receive high-quality medical care.
