Conflict in Ukraine: Situation Report #6

Mar 14, 2022
  • Description

As airstrikes draw closer to the western city of Lviv, Project HOPE delivered a large shipment of antibiotics, surgical supplies, and other medical necessities to First Emergency Territorial Hospital in Lviv this morning.

Project HOPE's Emergency Response Team stayed at the hospital over the weekend and was also able to provide badly-needed medical supplies, including cardiac sutures that were used in a heart transplant at the hospital.

More relief for Ukraine is on the way: We are also mobilizing two Interagency Health Kits (IEHKs) to Ukraine, which are expected to arrive later this week, as well as two pallets of International Health Partner UK's Emergency Health Packs, which are expected to arrive next week in Lviv. Project HOPE is also supporting a Ukrainian non-governmental organization so that they can purchase and transport pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to civilian hospitals throughout the country.

Project HOPE's response continues to expand in Poland, Moldova, and Romania, including support for a mobile medical team that is treating refugee children crossing the Ukraine/Moldova border.
