Denver Business Community Campaign to Send Medical Supplies to Ukraine Incredibly Successful

“The response of our patients and the denver community has been overwhelming,” said Shay Kerman, COO of Urgent Care Solutions. “Thank you.”

“Based on the response and compassion to this humanitarian effort shown by people in the denver region, I am also pleased to announce that we are donating a $20,000 to the CURE project team,” Kerman said. “This will help increase what we can send and help cover some of the costs of shipping and delivering these essential goods to Ukraine.

The need for essential medical supplies has also been exacerbated by attacks on hospitals and health facilities. The situation in Ukraine remains serious. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 43 hospitals and health facilities have been attacked causing a severe shortage of medicines and life-saving supplies.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has verified over 5,000 civilians killed and injured from April 19, 2022, but warns that the actual numbers are likely much larger. More than two million people have been displaced inside Ukraine in addition to the other three million who have already fled the country.

Donated supplies travel by boat or plane to Europe. Shipments often arrive in Polandwhere partner organizations transport medical supplies across the border to Ukraine to deliver them to operating medical facilities and government agencies for assistance. Some of the return flights also transported orphaned Ukrainian children and their caregivers to ensure their safety.

denver area residents can continue to support relief efforts by donate to Project CURE relief efforts on the organization’s website.
