“They had an accident. He amputated his toes, he also has injuries to his ribs, and his arm has to be wired,” Jan Zamrazil, chairman of the Health Insurance organization, told iDNES.cz.
The man is currently in a hospital in western Ukraine. To cover the expenses associated with the operation, the organization plans to organize a fundraiser.
“He helped the children there, he didn’t fight. Yesterday’s operation alone will cost him twenty thousand hryvnias (about 11,500 crowns), so we want to help him. There is no question of transfer to the Czech Republic yet, because his life is not in danger,” said Zamrazil.
Unfortunately, we have a wounded Czech volunteer. We are waiting for information on how the operation turned out. :/ let’s all keep our fingers crossed. 🙏🙏🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/Z7aIZqbe6W

“These are mainly women, children, sick and injured civilians, immobile patients. For those who remain and participate in the defense of their homeland, we import humanitarian aid – medicine, food, hygiene items and other daily necessities,” the organization says on its website.
