On Saturday, 17 December, RSU Red Cross Medical College organized Emergency Medical Aid courses for medical workers who arrived to Latvia from Ukraine. The healthcare professionals had a chance not only to listen to theory lectures but also to get a hands-on practice in giving first-aid.
The courses for Ukrainian medicine workers were organized as a part of the “High five!” campaign, where the raised funding will be donated to Ukrainian refugee families.
RSURCMC are happy to be able to help Ukrainian colleagues. “How can we help? We can share our experience and knowledge to make it easier for people to get involved and integrated”, said Viktors Gorovenko, the Director of the study program Emergency Medicine Physician’s Assistant at RSURCMC. Head of the "Krasts" brigade support center of the Riga regional Emergency medical service Rafaels Ciekurs also expressed his support: “In EMS we work with Ukrainian families and their children, who suffer from psycho-emotional trauma. There are patients who ask to turn off the siren, because its sound still causes them a great distress”.
RSURCMC is hoping to get more involved into helping and supporting Ukrainian medical workers arriving to Latvia.
