The medical care in many eastern European countries leaves much to be desired. Countries like the Republic of Moldova or Ukraine have no National Health Service. People have to pay the nurses and doctors very well, otherwise the necessary help will not be given, often not even in the most urgent and life-threatening situations. There are countless examples of very slow recovery, permanent physical damage or disability. The Medical Fund supports families when they are unable to pay for their medical treatment.

Often diseases and physical problems can be treated easily, the main problem for many people is the costs involved. Often families have to go with cheap medication, which is much weaker resulting in a much longer recovery period, or they choose not to treat diseases, wounds or any other physical problem, with often devastating results.
