Press release: Urgent money needed for medical assistance to the Ukrainian wounded

Tanya van Workum of the Djakoejoe Foundation is in direct contact with a surgeon who
works in one of the Ukrainian hospitals. According to the surgeon, there are currently
hundreds of injured people who need to be treated for wounds: “These are gunshot and
shrapnel wounds, but also very serious injuries to limbs and even amputations. There is a
major shortage of materials for the VAC devices for medical care to injured Ukrainians. They
help to heal the wounds that people suffer from – faster. We urgently need money to
purchase these materials for wound care. The materials save lives and accelerate the healing
process. With sufficient medical supplies, we will be able to help many people on a daily

Money for wound care: send supplies where they are needed most

Tanya van Workum, originally from Ukraine, is chairman of the Djakoejoe Foundation in Oss.
She has been living in the Netherlands for 12 years now. Because of her business, she is in
touch with her home country often. “There are no words to describe how much suffering there
is. There is fighting in many places in the country, such as at Bachmoet, where there are
many victims. We use the donations to purchase materials in the Netherlands and Belgium
and take them to different places in Ukraine. We partner with other foundations for transport.
We previously supplied dozens of pumps, but the materials for these devices have now run
out. Money is now urgently needed for that.”

Donate tax-friendly money for wound care

We encourage everyone to donate via bank account NL40BUNQ2068828634 in the name of:
Foundation Djakoejoe. The foundation has an ANBI status, so donations are tax-deductible.
Every gift, no matter how big or small, can make a difference for the victims in Ukraine.
‘Djakoejoe’ is Ukrainian for ‘Thank you’.

Stoves for Ukraine

The terrible bombing of civilian targets was the reason to set up our campaign ‘Stoves for Ukraine’.
Sander de Kramer and David van Kaam have now sent 10,000 heaters and various generators to
Ukraine. Because of our contacts at local hospitals, we were able to arrange generators for the
operating rooms of 3 hospitals in Mykolaiv.A total of 12 units (with accessories) are now on their way
to Ukraine. The local people are very grateful for this.

We would like to thank Sander en David for the collaboration and transporting the equipment.

We are also involved in a new project where we want to provide 650 refugees with tents, camp beds
and sleeping bags. Contributions to achieving this goal are very much appreciated!

Patient monitoring monitors

Patient monitoring monitors

We recently received a request from a hospital in southern Ukraine. This small hospital
doesn’t have enough resources to provide good care. It currently has 30 people in ICU and
only 1 monitor for patient monitoring. With the help of the Djakoejoe Foundation, 10 monitors
are now on their way to this hospital.
