Publication date:2022-03-08
On the afternoon of 7 March, AMDA’s Japanese doctor arrived in Budapest, Hungary, for aid work in response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. After arrival, the doctor, who currently resides in Holland, was joined by a Japanese medical student now studying at Semmelweis University, a well-established college in the nation. The two immediately started gathering information with regards to the situations surrounding Ukrainian evacuees in major stations and other places in central Budapest.
