Red Cross urges respect in Ukraine

The International Committee of the Red Cross has issued a warning about medical services in Ukraine.

You can read the news release at their website: Ukraine: ICRC urges respect for medical aid and humanitarian work.

Aid Convoy would like to add its voice to the ICRC’s plea and demand that those involved in all sides of the conflict must respect medical and humanitarian workers. We are all striving to provide essential help and support to the victims of this conflict, irrespective of their political views, or indeed the nature of their involvement in the events.

A simple message to anyone considering trying to interfere with humanitarian actors: when you are the ones who are hurt, would you want your enemies to stop us from reaching you?
