During 2021 we spent almost $10,000 to purchase cancer drugs for patients in Russia and Tajikistan. Half of the medications went to a cancer hospital in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the rest to individual patients.
Since Russia's invastion of Ukraine, hundreds of foreign businesses paused or closed their operations in Russia to protest this senseless and brutal war, including pharmaceuticals, manufacturers, and shipping companies. However, we expect that medications needed by cancer patients will continue to be supplied by the pharmaceutical companies on the humanitarian grounds. In the past, we were able to help our partner in St. Petersburg, Advita fund, with bringing in the medications from outside Russia when the hospitals they support ran out of medications approved in their budgets. We don't know at this point if it will be possible for Advita fund to continue bringing medications from abroad. As we have more clarity, we will update our supporters.
Meanwhile, we are still providing help individual cancer patients who request aid with paying for medications - anywhere in the former Soviet Union. Thank you so much for your care and support for cancer patients - we really appreciate your help during these turbulent times.
