    The hospital, together with doctors, nurses, and support staff, is providing specialised trauma care to people impacted by the conflict. This unit has the capacity to treat more than 100 patients each day, and comprises 30 beds, an operating theatre and an Intensive Care Unit. Two medical clinics will also be deployed to meet minor trauma needs and provide general medical care for 200 patients.

  • Psalm 31 ‘a psalm for the whole of Ukraine’

    Bible Society

    People in Ukraine are turning to Psalm 31 to bring them hope and comfort as they shelter in bunkers in fear of their lives.

    Oldi Morava of the Bible Society said: ‘Our colleagues in Ukraine have noticed that, during this particularly difficult time, many people want to find strength and rest, but also comfort in their faith and in God’s word. They’re reading the Book of Psalms for their own particular context. One of the Psalms that is becoming almost a Psalm for the whole of Ukraine is Psalm 31’.
