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. 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 are critically important to helping care for the sickest of the sick, and we are very grateful to Andrew for this donation.

The medical supplies will be shipped to the Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital by our good friends at RocMaidan in the coming weeks. Thank you RocMaidan for all you do to help Ukraine!
