Ladies and Gentleman,
We have been witnessing the war in Ukraine for several days now. The war has already resulted in a large death toll and the refugees issue whose consequences are hard to foresee.
Today, I have established Team for Aid to Ukraine, which is composed of:
The team’s task is to coordinate the aid sent to the victims of the military attack on Ukraine.
With a view to a long-term and multifaceted assistance, our aid will primarily include medical service support provided by the University hospitals to all diseased people, including refugees.
I am asking our students to be so kind as to help at our casualty departments and emergency rooms as they capacity may soon appear to be reduced by an increasing number of patients.
People who speak Ukrainian or Russian are also most needed to help as interpreters.
Currently, there are 37 students of Ukrainian origin studying at our University, there are three PhD students and three employees from Ukraine. Today, all of them have received e-mails asking them for information how we can help them.
I would also like to urge the entire academic community of MUL to offer their assistance and support for those who suffered in this war.
Any information on the support initiatives which our University is involved in and which you may join is available on the University website and social media.
Prof. Radzisław Kordek
