Support Ukraine

The war in Ukraine is preventing front-line doctors from accessing medical equipment and supplies.

Our Approach is Targeted and Direct

Medical equipment is unavailable for purchase in Ukraine because of the war, so we have located suppliers in Europe and North America. We target our efforts to deliver equipment and supplies to the locations that need it most. The doctors will receive the equipment they need. To date, our contacts have made several successful deliveries from Edmonton and Calgary to front-line doctors.

We are fortunate to have larger organizations accepting donations. However, their logistics can be complex.

Our approach is direct. The needed equipment and supplies will go to verified contacts on the front-lines.

Medical Equipment and Supplies needed

Military physicians have put together a list of equipment that will help them stop bleeding, perform fast repairs and cauterizations, and prevent amputation. The doctors have requested the following:*

  • Apparatus for Vacuum-Assisted Closure of Wounds – XLR8 Plus NPWT Pump.
  • Electro-surgical coagulator with monopolar and bipolar settings, argon-plasma coagulation – ES-VISION.
