On August 16, Razom hosted an event welcoming our key medical aid distribution partner Zdorovi Agency to the Ukrainian Institute of America in New York City to meet our US-based medical donation partners.
Zdorovi CEO Nataliia Tulinova gave a firsthand account of her organization’s work to help cover the tremendous needs of Ukrainian hospitals right now. Since February 24, Zdorovi has distributed 231 tons of medical aid through 332 deliveries to hospitals, maternity centers, and elder facilities in 22 regions across the country. Around 70% of this aid has come from Razom and its US-based donation partners.
The meeting was also a call to action. Nearly one quarter of Ukrainian hospitals have been damaged or occupied since the start of the war. The upcoming winter also poses new challenges – reliable energy sources and heating will be most critical. Ukraine’s Ministry of Health estimates that 627 hospitals will soon need generators.
Razom extends a huge thank you to all our partners who joined the event in-person and virtually: Americares, Medshare, CMMB, Partners For World Health, Afya Foundation, Airlink Flight, Plast USA, and UMANA – Ukrainian Medical Association of North America.
We are pleased to share a few recent impact photos from our trusted partner Zdorovi Agency, which continues to distribute donated medical aid to hospitals throughout Ukraine.
