Medicine from Poland

Volunteers purchased medicine in Poland and delivered in Ukrainian regions. 

Medicine from Poland

We worked with volunteers and doctors on the ground in Ukraine to identify which medicines are most needed and are hard to come by at the moment.  We then partnered with Polish volunteer organization Humanosh to purchase and deliver medicine to Ukraine.  It was important to partner with an official organization to facilitate the legal purchase and international shipment of the medicines, in particular prescribed ones. Humanosh delivered the parcels directly to Chornomosrk And our volunteers distributed medicine to hospitals as well as directly to people.
