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.
Two three-person Response Teams deployed to Ukraine on Sunday 26 November. The Responders are travelling to Zaporizhzya and Kherson in Ukraine to support partners working close to the frontline. They will be providing Incident Management Training to UEP and Myrne Nebo, with a focus on trauma medicine.
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 continuing to monitor the situation via our trusted partners on the ground. REACT deployed Response Teams to the High Atlas Mountains earlier this year, to identify immediate needs as a result of the devastating earthquake. Teams worked to provide shelter, sanitation and medical assistance where it was most-needed.
