This week a 40-ft container full of humanitarian medical supplies has been delivered to the Irpin Military Hospital, Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine.
The supplies included such valuable equipment as an endoscopic stand, intensive care beds, special medical monitors with life control function, pressure measuring devices, various surgical kits, and much more. This equipment is urgently needed at this medical facility to achieve adequate diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation services for wounded Ukrainian soldiers and civilians. Everything is transferred to the hospital free of charge.
The delivery of this cargo was made possible due to the cooperation between Support Hospitals in Ukraine – Підтримка Лікарень України and United Help Ukraine. The idea of the cooperation was suggested by diplomats of the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA / Посольство України в США in late 2018.
Since November 2018, United Help Ukraine was able to raise enough funds to cover the shipment cost for the 40-ft container of medical equipment and supplies for the Irpin Military Hospital.
Once again, we would like to thank our partners and the many donors who made possible the realization of this important project. We thank Ukrainian musicians Solomia Gorokhivska , Andrei Pidkivka, Pavel Gintov who performed at the charitable concerts to help us raise funds for this project. We are grateful to the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA / Посольство України в США that co-sponsored the concerts and provided significant logistical and financial support.
