Americares this week announced it will deliver 100 tons of critically needed medicine and medical supplies to Ukraine.
The Stamford, Connecticut-based health-focused relief and development organization said the shipment will support healthcare providers who are treating children and adults affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The supplies include antibiotics, medicines for conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, wound care products and first aid and hygiene supplies.
“The needs in Ukraine, as well as in Poland and other neighboring countries where millions of refugees have fled, are enormous,” said Americares Director of Complex Humanitarian Emergencies Adam Keehn. “We are committed to meeting these needs in both the short and long term, with the medicine and relief supplies we have already provided making a life-saving difference for those caught in the crisis.”
