Dear ESR Members,
Dear colleagues and friends,
We are writing to you with great sympathy for the plight of all Ukrainians. Individually and collectively on behalf of the ESR, members of the Board of Directors deplore the loss of life and destruction resulting from the invasion of Ukraine initiated by the Russian leadership. As an apolitical academic, scientific and educational society, we feel it is important for us to do all within our power to support our Ukrainian colleagues and their patients during these catastrophic times.
The ESR Board of Directors has therefore decided to support “Doctors Without Borders” (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)), which is mobilizing an emergency preparedness response for a variety of potential needs.
We have also set up the following account to collect donations on behalf of the radiological community for this purpose and herewith encourage all our individual members, member societies, colleagues and friends to consider contributing.
IBAN: AT03 2011 1285 6166 3302
BANK NAME: DIE ERSTE BANK
ACCOUNT NAME: ESR
PLEASE KINDLY INDICATE “SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE” AS PURPOSE OF THIS TRANSFER.
Our hearts are with all Ukrainians and our hopes are focused on a rapid end to this war.
Prof. Michael Fuchsjäger
Chairman of the ESR Board of Directors
On behalf of the ESR Board of Directors
