In the four months since the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces on February 24, 2022, Direct Relief has emerged as one of the largest charitable providers of medical aid to Ukraine,delivering more than 800 tons (1.5+ million pounds) of medicines and supplies and providing over $14.7 million in direct financial assistance to other organizations in the region.The cash assistance has included direct payments for refugees to cover prescription medication costs, as well as operating funds for health facilities providing care in Ukraine.
As the war continues, Direct Relief is approaching the response along two parallel tracks –support for those experiencing the conflict in Ukraine, and for those fleeing Ukraine to neighboring countries.
Direct Relief’s main objective in any large-scale disaster response is to safely and securely deliver emergency medical resources – that are requested, approved by the responsible government authority, and appropriate for the circumstances – where they are most needed, as fast and efficiently as possible.
Direct Relief’s support in response to the crisis in Ukraine can be divided into three categories:medical material assistance, direct financial assistance and information assistance.
Healthcare facilities and organizations in Ukraine that have received medical goods include:
Ukrainian Ministry of Health
Charity Fund Modern Village and Town
Kharkiv City Council
Odessa Ministry of Health/City Center
Kyiv Renal and Nephrology Center
Fondation Humanitaire International
Chernivtsi City Charitable Fund
