Project HOPE's response to the Ukraine crisis continues to expand inside and around Ukraine, including the delivery of two Interagency Health Kits into Lviv, Ukraine today. These kits will provide enough primary health care medication to provide for 20,000 people over the next three months.
Project HOPE is also facilitating the transport of five pallets of anesthesia and injectables from Krakow into Lviv this week. Additional IEHKs will be transported into Ukraine next week, as well as International Health Partner UK's Emergency Health Packs and other supplies.
To date, Project HOPE's support has included the delivery of essential medicines, medical equipment, and consumables as well as hygiene kits and other non-food items like towels and bedding. Project HOPE's teams are also working with partners and developing action plans to address health, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), additional non-food items, protection, and water and hygiene needs in Ukraine and among refugees.
