Patients were met in Latvia by a multidisciplinary medical team – doctors and care personnel of various specialties. All patients underwent comprehensive health screening, and a variety of radiological and laboratory examinations.
A number of complex surgical or microsurgical operations will be carried out for the very severely injured in Latvia. Patients will be treated throughout by physical therapists, ergotherapists and rehabilitation specialists to contribute to a faster recovery following major surgery.
One of the founders of the charity project “M-help.com”, Mārtiņš Medinieks, noted that the number of wounded Ukrainian soldiers was still rising.
"There is much talk in the news of the anti-attacks by the Ukrainian army, which are taking place thanks not only to the armaments and equipment that have been donated but also to the courage and heroism of the soldiers.
"Unfortunately, the harsh reality is this – soldiers die on the battlefield, while the best Latvian doctors help the severely injured. I am pleased that we are able to agree to help and demonstrate that there are no longer formal barriers."
