Reports on aid given to Ukraine Допомога Україні
UCC-MPC through its Euromaidan Committee has been sending money raised through various fundraising campaigns to those injured on the Maidan this past winter. Now, we have begun helping wounded soldiers with their recovery and with warm clothing for the winter. Below are reports from those that have received aid from Manitobans through UCC-MPC.
UCC-MPC sends container of Aid to Ukraine
On Saturday June 11, 2016 UCC-MPC Euromaidan Committee met its commitment of sending a container of medical equipment to Ukraine. The container was filled with mostly fully functioning modern hospital beds, which had been obtained and refurbished by International Hope Canada. The container made its way to Toronto. While in there, volunteers were able to add a number of additional high value items including 5 electronic patient lifters, 16 mattresses and a number of boxes full of medical supplies. One photograph shows how the container looked leaving Winnipeg, and then how it looked before it got sealed and sent.
Thanks to all volunteers that helped, to our donors, to International Hope Canada, and the professional transport people who will ensure that this valuable assistance makes it Ukraine!
