The United States has sent two planes with medicines to Ukraine
150 tons of medicines and consumables were sent to Ukraine by philanthropists from the USA. The day before, the humanitarian cargo landed in Poland that are already heading to Ukraine.
"Two planes with medical assistance for Ukraine have already landed in Poland. We are currently distributing humanitarian aid and will deliver it to our territory by land transport. Part of the cargo is already in Ukraine", said Deputy Minister of Health Oleksiy Yaremenko.
"This time we received from our partners not only medicines, but also equipment and an ambulance. The Ministry of Health thanks every friend of Ukraine who contributed to this cargo and helped to provide our healthcare system with the necessary tools in difficult times."
The humanitarian cargo contains medicines that Ukrainian hospitals need most today. These include antibiotics, hemostatic and anti-inflammatory drugs, surgical sutures, tourniquets to control bleeding and the necessary medical equipment. In addition, one of the planes, among other things, delivered an ambulance.
Humanitarian aid for Ukraine was raised by hospitals and philanthropists from various states with the support of the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (UMANA).
The received medicines, medical devices and equipment will be distributed among the Ukrainian hospitals that are in the war zone and need the most support.
