Hospitals, not a target

09 July 2024

On 8 July, Ukraine was hit by a series of bombardments affecting civilian facilities, including hospitals. More than 150 people were killed or injured.

International humanitarian law is categorical: hospitals must not be targeted in times of conflict. Attacking these establishments endangers the most vulnerable and hinders access to essential care.

The Luxembourg Red Cross is working to rehabilitate affected hospitals, such as in Dnipro, where the university hospital provides care, training and support to more than a million people.
