Hear from former NHS consultant, Dr Iryna Rybinkina who is currently working in Ukraine. Through her charity, Smart Medical Aid her team is supplying Ukrainian doctors with medical and tactical equipment. With the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia in February, Iryna realised that she had to be in Ukraine to help Ukrainians fight for their lives. She gathered a team and a network of partnerships that helped find and deliver even more medical equipment, evacuate victims, and teach tactical medicine and first aid. She will share her experience as the conflict passes its six month mark.
