November 08: Winter Sleeping Bags for Kerson

250 winter sleeping bags were distributed to people in the Kherson region thanks to the generous donation. Following the destruction of the dam, many buildings are damaged and no longer insulated. The sleeping bags are therefore of great use now that the cold season is beginning.

Thanks to Jenny from https://gemeinsamhelfen.mkw.eu

October 24: Aspirator for Ternopil Hospital

Together with Ternopil Foundation we visited the ENT department of Ternopil Regional Clinical Hospital and donated a medical aspirator! 
The department had only one, which caused difficulties with two parallel operations. 
The aspirator facilitates the operation process!


Thanks to "Alex", whose generous donation made this possible!

October 23: Presents for Mariyka & Sashko 

Again and again we experience sad stories. This is one of them:
 
Recently Mariyka and Sashko from Kharkiv came to our friends from Ternopil Foundation. We presented them with toys and school bags. 
A small smile on their faces, but the tragedy behind it is indescribable: the war has made them orphans. 
Now they live with Victoria, a loving and brave foster mother who is still raising her own child.
Sashko and Mariyka greatest desire is to explore the world 🌍

We wish you all the best!

A successful aid week ended with a classic “lift”:
 After 32 hours of driving, Yuri was taken to his wife Alla, who was evacuated in November as part of our program. Toys and clothing left behind by the last evacuation were also brought to Anna's family.

August 8: Delivery to the ENT ward Ternopil

The next stop was the ENT ward in the regional hospital of the Ternopil oblast.
 
Here, among other things, acoustic trauma is treated. There are only 3 hospitals in Ukraine that operate on the eardrum. Accordingly, it is full due to the Russian shelling with shells and rockets.
This time there was not only a lot of medical consumables (surgical drapes, bandages, insulin syringes, syringes, surgical kits, catheters, needles, systems), but also an oral cavity endoscope and an electric scalpel (electrotome).

Special thanks go to Dr. Falko Knopp https://drknopp.de
