Accountant to drive and donate aid-filled ambulance to Ukraine

Paul Samrah, a consultant with multi-disciplinary professional advisory firm Moore Kingston Smith, is raising funds to refurbish an ambulance, fill it with supplies and personally deliver it to Ukraine as part of a convoy leaving Kent on Sunday 22 September.

Paul is fundraising £15,000 for Medical Life Lines Ukraine (MLLU) through the Moore Kingston Smith Community Foundation. These funds will cover purchasing, renovating and stocking the ambulance with medical and practical aid, including dressings, equipment and defibrillators, as well as the drive to Ukraine.

Paul commented: “The need for humanitarian aid and medical supplies is enormous. Through this initiative, we can provide practical and essential assistance, and make a real difference to the people of Ukraine. Every penny raised goes towards the ambulance, stocking it and getting it to the Ministry of Health.”

Dubbed the ‘Mega Convoy’, the fleet leaving in September is set to be MLLU’s biggest yet. So far, the organisation has delivered 52 ambulances to locations and hospitals throughout the country including Kyiv City Hospital, Boryspil Neonatal Centre, Okhmatdyt Children’s Perinatal Unit, Kharkiv A&E and more.

Paul recently retired on 30 April, marking nearly 43 years with Moore Kingston Smith. Based at the Redhill office, he was Brexit impact specialist and led the healthcare sector. As well as heading up the Wellbeing Committee, he chaired the Charity Committee and launched the Moore Kingston Smith Community Foundation in 2021. The Redhill team continues to be led by partner Ian Matthews, supported by directors Amy Marshall and Mandy Settle.
