REACT Disaster Response is a disaster and crisis response charity, operating both in the UK and overseas. Established in 2015, teams of volunteer REACT Responders have the skills and training to rapidly identify and meet critical needs, helping people and communities affected by sudden or unexpected events.
Our Response Teams are now safely back from Ukraine which saw them deliver Incident Management Training to our partners Ukrainian Education Platform and Myrne Nebo and a host of local organisations including the Ukrainian Red Cross. They travelled to Zaporizphia and Kherson to deliver a programme to 92 people, which focussed on risk mitigation and trauma medicine. They also left behind essential medical equipment for both teams and individuals.
We continue to monitor the evolving situation, gaining increased understanding and awareness about our capability to support potential operational partners in situ. We have now had specific conversations with four potential partners – two within the UN system and two International NGOs. Conversations at this time are focussing on where REACT may be able to add immediate-term strategic support. Our thanks to REACT Responder Chris Rose, who is travelling in the Middle East and has been able to facilitate communications.
We are planning an operation to return to the High Atlas Mountains to work with our local partners. We will assist them in the construction of winterised shelters and assess and meet any critical unmet needs.
