Ukraine - France mobilized to support Ukraine by caring for wounded and children with cancer (Paris, 20 May 2022)


As part of our support for Ukraine, the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs has conducted its 14th emergency humanitarian operation.

The Crisis and Support Center of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs chartered its first special medical flight today to airlift seven Ukrainian war-wounded and three Ukrainian children with cancer, accompanied by their caregivers, from Poland to France. Hospitals throughout France are standing by to treat these patients, whose care will be covered by the Ministry for Solidarity and Health and the Ministry for the Armed Forces.

Similar operations will follow.

France remains committed to supporting Ukraine and populations affected by the consequences of the Russian aggression.
