Logistics Manager for Ukraine

MdM Germany – Ukraine, Dnipro

The humanitarian aid organization Ärzte der Welt e. V. is the German division of the international network Médecins du Monde/Doctors of the World (MdM). The 17 national members of the network implement domestic and international health care projects, currently almost 340 projects in 75 countries around the world.
MdM provides emergency medical aid in disaster and crisis situations, supports access to health care and, if possible, assists with reconstruction measures. The network is also active in risk reduction and preparedness as well as long-term development co-operations in neglected regions around the world that receive little public attention. MdM ensures that its health services are provided equally to the most vulnerable citizens, refugees, internally displaced people and host communities, regardless of their ethnic, social, religious or political background.


MdM has been operating in Eastern Ukraine since 2015, targeting the most vulnerable communities and people affected by the ongoing conflict by improving access and quality of health care services for the population in Luhansk Oblast and Donetsk Oblast.
Since the Russian invasion in February 2022 MdM has restructured its setting in Ukraine and adjusted the programme accordingly. Currently four MdM chapters are active in Ukraine (MdM Spain (network lead), MdM France, MdM Greece and MdM Germany). The MdM network maintains a coordination office in Kiev and each MdM chapter manages field offices in its geographical areas. MdM Germany’s programme is covering the Oblasts Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk and Vinnytsia with field offices in Kramatorsk, Dnipro and Vinnytsia. The emergency response in Ukraine is currently implemented around two main components: direct delivery of services through multidisciplinary mobile units (including PHC, SRH and MHPSS) to IDPs and strengthening the local health system through distribution of medicines and medical supplies to several health care facilities, rehabilitation of health care facilities as well as targeted capacity building measures.
