Challenge

Seeing the overwhelmed hospitals and ICUs of big US cities - one of the richest countries in the world, we understand the vital necessity to help Ukraine in their battle against the pandemic. Today, all doctors in Ukraine need personal protective equipment (PPE) to avoid contracting the virus while helping patients. Most hospitals also badly need expensive equipment such as ventilators, x-ray machines, and coronavirus tests for patients to increase the likelihood of survival.

Solution

The funds raised will be used to buy large batches of protection for doctors and coronavirus tests for patients showing symptoms and after recovery. X-ray machines and ventilators are expensive and essential for the diagnosis of COVID-19. "Patients of Ukraine" will ensure that the equipment will go to the hospitals where it is most in demand.

Long-Term Impact

The funds we raise could be used to buy over 1000 ventilators as well as large batches of PPE and coronavirus tests for hospitals around Ukraine that are identified to have the most need. This equipment could save many lives throughout Ukraine.
