The weak and the vulnerable are the first to fall victim to the cruelty of war. This is also the case in Ukraine. Our long-time partners and friends from the National Assembly of People with Disabilities of Ukraine report terrible things about the condition of their charges who need help and support. Especially in areas adjacent to war zones, the situation remains extremely critical. We cannot give these people back their lives before the war. But we can try to help.
The team of INTAMT is overwhelmed with grief and concern about the events surrounding the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army. We could not ignore this huge human tragedy, especially as many Ukrainian colleagues, with whom we have longstanding business relations, are among the victims. Do what you can to stop the bloodshed! Solidarity from people all over the world is the only thing that can prevent the expansion of the war in Ukraine to a worldwide catastrophe!
