The humanitarian aid delivery was realized in cooperation with the organisation Firemedical which provides medical assistance directly in the facility to all age groups living there. Among their health professionals present on site there are also chirurgeons, pediatrists and general practitioners.
The delivery contained 183 pieces of medical supplies and equipment, such as wheelchairs, walking aids, crutches, bandages and different kinds of medical beds.
More than 90 elderly people are currently living in the facility. Most of them being dependent on assistance of health professionals, the aid delivery will make their everyday lives less difficult.
"The equipment will serve to improve health and social care. Thanks to the cooperation of IOM and Firemedical we can help people who are now threatened by the war and social deficit as they can't live in the conditions they were used to for many years," said Boris Kovac, director of Firemedical.
In July 2022, IOM delivered humanitarian aid to the Gabcikovo Accommodation Facility which consisted of kitchen sets and hygiene kits.
