December Medical Supply Shipment Arrives

This past week our December Medical Supply Shipment arrived at the Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital, shipped courtesy of our good friends at RocMaidan. Thank you RocMaidan!

As you may recall, this shipment included 270 lbs (123 kg) of medical tube feeding formula used for patients who have had a gastrostomy tube placed due to an injury and illness, and need a way to receive nutrition during their recovery. Also included were supplies to care for patients who have a tracheostomy placed. A tracheostomy is an airway that is surgically placed in a patient’s neck that allows them to breathe if due to injury or illness they are not able to breathe for themselves.

These supplies were donated by Andrew Ragan, a retired Rochester area teacher and we thank him for his generous contribution. These medical supplies will help to care for critically ill patients and will help in their recovery.

Here are some photos of staff at the Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital with the supplies:
