Winter Fundraiser for Frontline Ambulance Supplies

This weekend we held our Winter Fundraiser to deliver medical supplies and automatic electronic defibrillators (AEDs) to frontline ambulances in Ukraine. What a success! Thanks to our amazing and dedicated donors, we raised $21,975 toward this delivery. It was a very special evening. First, our friends at the Rochester Academy of Medicine graciously donated use of their beautiful venue at the Lyon House on East Avenue in Rochester. We are so grateful for this donation, as it made this fundraiser possible, and helped draw the crowd into their stunning book-lined living room with sublime acoustics.

December Medical Supply Shipment

This past week, we received a very generous donation. Andrew Ragan, a retired Rochester area teacher, donated 270 lbs (123 kg) of medical supplies to the Ukraine Medical Relief Fund. These supplies include medical tube feeding formula that is used for patients who may have had a gastrostomy tube placed due to an injury and illness, and need a way to receive nutrition during their recovery. Also included are supplies to care for patients who have had a tracheostomy placed.

Toys for Kharkiv Children's Hospital

We wanted to share with you some recent images of the delivery of toys to patients at the Kharkiv Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital, which we sent a couple of weeks ago. We hope you find these pictures as heartwarming as we do. With bad news seemingly coming at us from all the corners of the globe, we and our donors are always looking for ways we can do something meaningful. Bringing a smile to the face of a hospitalized child is just one way we can do that.

Bring Them Home Now

The message from our canine volunteers is again really simple. Children are children, no matter where they are. They need to play, go to school, make friends, be with their families, and live in peace. The terrorist state continues to hold hostage thousands of Ukrainian children illegally transferred from their homes. No one will ever forget this. In horror, we saw on October 7 how Putin’s friends in Tehran and Gaza all share something in common – the kidnapping of civilians including children as hostages.

Tpn Delivered

Earlier this summer, we received a request from the O.O. Shalimov National Institute of Surgery and Transplant Medicine in Kyiv to help provide supplies of Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) for their patients. Many of their patients have suffered combat wounds and required surgery, and may not be able to eat and use their gut to absorb nutrients while recovering. TPN, you will recall, provides all the protein, sugars, and fats – as well as vitamins and minerals – that the body needs while healing.
