Viveo Health launches charity project in Ukraine
Ellex in Estonia helped the telemedicine platform Viveo Health launch a charity project where doctors, nurses and many other medical practitioners provide consultations to people in the war zone in Ukraine as humanitarian assistance via ViveoCares Foundation.
This is the first such cross-border telemedicine service known to be provided in the world. All medical practitioners regardless of their location or nationality can help the people of Ukraine by providing video consultations.
CEO of ViveoCares and health technology start-up Viveo Health Raul Källo says that as citizens of the world we have a moral duty to help those with limited or no resources.
“We want to help the people of Ukraine and have opened our telemedicine platform for doctors to provide Ukrainian people with free access to medicine by using video calls,” he explains.
The number of consultations, doctors and patients is growing day by day. Medical experts from the UK, USA, Germany, Poland, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, India, Romania and Switzerland are providing medical assistance to Ukrainians in video calls.
Ellex has donated 75,000 euros to the armed forces of Ukraine, we provide pro bono legal assistance, collect things for those in need, donate as individuals and contribute our time to help refugees. “Innovation and e-services are important for Estonia as well as Ellex, so we were happy to take on the opportunity to match those in need with help,” said Ants Nõmper, Managing Partner of Ellex in Estonia.
Ellex calls on all doctors, nurses, therapists and other medical practitioners to join the project and support the Ukrainian people with medical assistance. Read more about the project HERE.
