In the EDTNA/ERCA association, we empathize with and offer our heartfelt support to healthcare workers in Israel during these challenging times, with special consideration for our Members and Volunteers. We are especially saddened that many won't be able to attend the 51st EDTNA/ERCA Congress in Vilnius, Lithuania. We will miss our Volunteers and all those who intended to present their work at our congress but cannot do so due to the ongoing conflict. Peace and dialogue should be paramount virtues, especially in the 21st century. We sincerely hope that this conflict comes to an end soon.

EDTNA/ERCA Statement of Solidarity with Ukraine
The appalling invasion of Ukraine is causing immense suffering, loss of human life, hardship and families to separate as millions of Ukrainians are forced to flee their homeland.

At EDTNA/ERCA we are saddened by the devastating scenes and are concerned for all healthcare professionals who bravely continue to provide care amidst senseless destruction and unimaginable human suffering. We stand in solidarity with all nurses and other healthcare professionals in Ukraine, grateful for their commitment and professionalism. Our utmost concern is for their safety and security, being on the frontlines of this atrocious humanitarian crisis.
We also appreciate the hard work and dedication of all healthcare professionals (local and volunteers) who are caring for the Ukrainian refugees at the border of Ukraine with neighbouring countries.

EDTNA/ERCA joins the call for a rapid resolution of Ukraine and all other conflicts to restore a normal and peaceful life in the world.
