War!                                     

After the attacks on Nagorno Karabakh by Azeris, there has been an outpouring of support from our AMIC colleagues worldwide. AMIC has received some information from Armenia and NKR, and will try to summarize it in this newsletter. We expect to update this page frequently; please refer back to it for the most current information. Contact AMIC or your local Armenian Health Professional association if you have any questions about needed supplies and equipment.


Our colleagues in Armenia have indicated a need for Wound Vac sponges and tubing for current treatment of wounded soldiers and civilians. There is a shipment was sent on April 10 and there is likely be an ongoing need. Wound Vac vacuum devices are also requested, although a few have already been obtained. A request was made for a pulse irrigating device for operating room use.


Earlier requests for consumable medical supplies (splints, dressings, etc) which came soon after the attacks reflect the need for these supplies in acute situations. There are fortunately adequate stores of these supplies in Armenia and NKR.


Requests for larger equipment items (surgical tables, anesthesia equipment, beds) reflect the ongoing chronic needs of several reasonably well-stocked hospitals in Stepanakert. Some portable emergency equipment may also be needed: airways, bagging equipment.


Where possible, shipments of equipment should be made through the Armenia Artsakh Fund.  They sent an air shipment on April 4 and will send further supplies by surface or air transport as the need arises. Please contact Nouritza Abujamra, 1101 N. Pacific Ave., #204, Glendale, CA 91202. Tel: 818-241-8900.

 

Local organizations have collected funds to support the families of the fallen.  Please be generous in your contributions to these important efforts.

 

We will continue to monitor the needs of Armenia and NKR military and civilian health workers and keep this site updated. As there may be need to send supplies urgently to Armenia, persons traveling to Yerevan with extra space in your baggage are encouraged to contact your local Armenian Health Professional associations, or contact AMIC directly at
