The goal is to become a single window for collecting donations to help Ukraine. The funds are transferred to the accounts of the National Bank of Ukraine and directed by the relevant ministries to the most urgent needs in three areas: defense and demining, medical care and reconstruction.

Thus, under the medical aid direction there has been purchased for donations:

  • 133 ambulances equipped with everything necessary for the transportation of seriously wounded;

  • 81 operating tables;
  • 7954 external fixation devices;

  • 22 C-arm X-ray units.

"The UNITED24 fundraising platform is a very successful case, which, in addition to communication, also works financially for Ukraine. Through it, we have managed to unite people around the world," says Deputy Minister of Health for Digital Development Maria Karchevych.
