The Ukrainian people continue their heroic defence of their homeland from Russia’s genocidal war. The humanitarian situation in Ukraine is critical and the needs immense. Thanks to your generous support and commitment the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal is able to deliver aid and assistance– both in Ukraine and to Ukrainians who have sought refuge in bordering countries.
42 pallets of medical supplies and life-saving equipment were recently delivered by the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal to Ukraine to meet a broad range of on-the-ground medical needs. This includes patient monitors, defibrillators, ventilators, patient lifts, stethoscopes, medical-grade blankets and a comprehensive array of first aid supplies.
Generous donations of life-saving equipment were collected from the Montfort Hospital, Queensway Carleton Hospital, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, The Ottawa Hospital, Brockville General Hospital, the Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Healthcare Linen Services.
The collection of donations from hospitals was led by Dr. Tetyana Rogalska, and CUF funded the logistics costs of the movement to Ukraine.
“This lifesaving equipment is in addition to the previous 60 pallets over the past 2 months. We are actively seeking additional donations from hospitals and suppliers across Canada,” said Victor Hetmanczuk, Chair of the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Committee.
Due to security issues, CUF will not identify the receiving locations institutions in Ukraine.
Please donate to the appeal today to support millions of Ukrainian families who have been displaced from their homes. #HelpUkraineNow
