2) building a network of contacts in Europe who could:

a) provide updated information about immigration law,

b) provide housing for Ukrainian lawyers and/or their families

c) establish some kind of online cooperation with Ukrainian lawyers, which would facilitate work with Ukrainian clients and provide some income for Ukrainian lawyers

3)  material and medical supplies  (hemostatic dressings- like CELOX, disposable sets (syringes, needles, sets for blood transfusion and drip), tourniquets, disinfectants, painkillers, antibiotics and basic medicines.
