One Year of Impact: LSM-Med’s Partnership with EMERGENCY 

For those outside Italy, you may not be familiar with an incredible organisation called EMERGENCY. 

Founded in 1994, EMERGENCY is an independent international organisation dedicated to providing free, high-quality medical and surgical care to victims of war, landmines, and poverty. Active in numerous warzones, they guarantee non-discriminatory treatment, regardless of political, ideological, or religious beliefs. EMERGENCY is also committed to training local staff, building infrastructure, and handing over facilities to local health authorities as soon as self-sustainability is achieved. To us, these people are heroes. 

One year ago, we were honoured to host two active members of EMERGENCY at our facilities: Sarah Hell, a specialised nurse at Bolzano Hospital, and Dr Marcello Zavatta, an orthopaedic surgeon based in Rimini. Every year, they dedicate a few months to EMERGENCY missions, travelling through Afghanistan and various African countries where they have helped build hospitals and care centres. 

With ongoing conflicts in different parts of Europe and the Middle East, we are constantly reminded of the devastating impact of war. Seeing patients with severe injuries in hospital settings is distressing, but hearing personal stories from those directly affected brings a profound realisation of the hardships endured. 

Over the past year, LSM-Med has proudly supported EMERGENCY by supplying high-quality trauma tools. Our commitment has strengthened as we see the impact of our contributions in areas where the need is immense and resources are scarce. We felt compelled to contribute in our own way to alleviate the suffering caused by war.  

As manufacturers of medical devices, our goal is to help them provide critical healthcare in areas where the need is immense and resources are scarce. Together, we can make a difference. Let’s continue to support those on the frontlines of humanitarian aid and ensure that quality medical care reaches those who need it most.
