BENEFITING: CHILDRENS MEDICAL CARE FOUNDATION
CRITICAL INFANT MEDICAL SUPPLIES NEEDED
Children’s Medical Care Foundation (cmcf.org) is asking for your help to fund vitally needed medical supplies for children in Ukraine.
The ravages of war and strife affect everyone. When it affects little ones who have no concept of war, only love and innocence, how can we not help? The struggle in the Ukraine is devastating. Today we ask for your help to provide the basic medical supplies essential in caring for the youngest victims, infants and children at the Lviv City Children’s Clinical Hospital, which is struggling to provide critically needed pediatric care.
Consistent basic medical supplies have disappeared in the Ukraine as the government continues to redirect money towards defending its eastern border. The horrendous and deadly war being waged in Eastern Ukraine affects every corner of the country, and it shows no mercy for the sick infants, children, and their families.
The Neonatologists and Pediatricians at this 420-Bed Children’s Hospital face medical supply shortages daily. Basic bandages, sterile gloves, catheters, etc. are either in short supply or non-existent.
Your contribution will save lives. Take a moment to help these poor infants and children who don’t understand the conflict, who can’t help but be their beautiful innocent selves.
Children's Medical Care Foundation is a global medical-scientific nonprofit, that, for 33 years, has funded specialized training for pediatricians from Eastern Europe. The Foundation has focused a significant portion of its training funds on Ukrainian pediatricians from the Lviv City Children’s Clinical Hospital, as well as other hospitals in Western Ukraine for the past 20 years.
While training has always been the Foundation’s primary mission, the Board has now deemed it necessary to initiate a campaign to raise funds for these critically needed basic medical supplies. We are asking for your urgent help and to join our Friends of Children donors to make a difference in saving a child.
