Fundraising for medical supplies in Ukraine

Surgeon urgently needs materials to treat the wounded 

Last Wednesday, the Djakoejoe foundation received a distressed call for help from a befriended Ukrainian surgeon. The continuous heavy fighting in (amongst others Bachmut), has lead to an endless stream of wounded people from cities where heavy fighting occurs and adjacent villages, to their hospital. Resulting in a rapid depletion of the hospital’s supplies. They urgently need various bandages and other medical materials and a to resupply their VAC material. Furthermore they also need the smaller Pico7 machines.. Please find a detailed list of requested items below. As the situation is dire, we would like to help them as soon as possible.

Previous successful fundraising initiatives for Ukraine

In the last months we have successfully supplied this same hospital with VAC appliances (Vacuum-Assisted Closure of a Wound). Next to the VAC materials, the surgeon also needs the smaller Pico 7 wound therapy systems . And other supplies as listed below. At this time the Djakoejoe Foundation lacks the funds to support this request for supplies, valued at about €25,000. Therefore, we are reaching out to you and your network, to help us raise the necessary funds as soon as possible.
