A war hospital near the front-line at Bakhmut requests help: they need an X-ray machine for detecting ammunition fragments in a body. Quite often soldiers are taken to the hospital with visible and extensive injuries, but more often with fragments of ammunition that penetrate a body after explosions and impacts. They may change location and move in the body. Sometimes the size of the splinter is just some millimetres: it is difficult to find it by touch and it may cause serious, life-threatening damage.
A professional X-ray machine is extremely necessary to save lives and relieve the torture of the injured as soon as possible.
Such X-ray machine has been found in Ukraine. That makes the project implementation considerably easier as there is no need for transportation and completion of documents. X-ray machine costs: EUR 25 000.
