We send ambulances with medical supplies to war torn, small towns in the Eastern part of Ukraine.
On the 24th of February 2022 the Russian Federation has started a bloody invasion of the sovereign territory of Ukraine. Since then, Ukraine has been fighting in a war of an unprecedented scale, resulting in many deaths and an associated public health emergency across the country and Europe more broadly. Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, and we want to ease the pain and save lives of those affected.
As a result of the war, there is a huge shortage and growing demand for medical and humanitarian supplies across Ukraine. One of the founders of the PHFS, Dr Olena Seminog, is Ukrainian. Since her years as a medical student in Kyiv, Ukraine, she has maintained a network of contacts with the doctors in different parts of the country. Now, her friends and colleagues are asking for medical aid.
PHFS is responding to their call by raising funds to provide life-saving medical supplies. We aim to purchase and deliver three or four ambulances with necessary equipment and medicines to Ukraine. Our fundraising goal is £45,000.
All donations will go to Ukraine. We work only with volunteers and have no overhead costs. We are a small charity, but with our contacts on the ground in Ukraine, we will be able to deliver the medical aid where it is most needed without a delay.
We have already delivered one ambulance to the town of Barvinkove in the East of Ukraine.
