Stop the Bleed

Problem

With the amount of shelling from russian troops, the response time of medical teams is growing exponentially. Destroyed roads and reduced amount of vehicles in operation, increases the time gap between an injury and being able to receive a competent help.

When a person is bleeding profusely and help is not nearby, they may bleed out before first responders can arrive and provide necessary medical care.

By applying a tourniquet, the goal is to prevent life-threatening blood loss.

Solution

LUkraine asbl has opened a call for action, to contract sponsor(s) or collect funds to supply 2.000 tourniquets of CAT or TMT type.

Tourniquets will be added to the expected pack of 4.000 Israeli haemostatic bandages and form a base for personal medical kits.

Beneficiaries

Local formations of “Hospitaliery”, Territorial Defense Formations and State Emergency Service of Ukraine in the South of Ukraine (Kherson region)
