In addition to our standard range of essential medicines and medical supplies, IDA also provides a variety of kits made to serve countries in need. We would like to share some of our Q1 and Q2 impact numbers related to kitting and emergency response with you, as this is an important part of our work and mission.

Last week, on February the 6th, a series of large devastating earthquakes struck the south-eastern part of Türkiye and north-western part of Syria, causing widespread destruction, injury and death. The disastrous impact of the earthquakes left millions of victims in urgent need of water, food, shelter and medical attention. Besides that, the earthquake had a significant impact on the existing infrastructure and continues to delay the delivery of medical aid in the affected areas.
This past month IDA Foundation has joined forces with i+solutions and other parties to ensure swift emergency shipments to Ukraine. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion in Ukraine four months ago, we have supported several initiatives to send emergency goods and medical relief products to Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
