Due to difficulties accessing these specialist products, children with Crohn’s and Colitis in Ukraine are missing out on vitally important nutritional support. We are working with our fellow members of the European Federation of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA), including our Ukrainian counterpart, to get much-needed supplies to families affected by the war.
CEO of Crohn’s & Colitis UK Sarah Sleet said. “We are deeply concerned that a desperate shortage of these specialist nutritional supplies is affecting hundreds of children with Crohn’s and Colitis in Ukraine. We are grateful to EFCCA for finding a way to distribute aid to those who need it, and we are united in our efforts to ensure that children with the conditions get help as swiftly as possible. By providing a donation on behalf of the UK’s Crohn’s & Colitis Community we hope we can help children living in dire circumstances to stay healthy.”
