Help the people of Ukraine
Shortly after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, WCH Service Bureau has organized a donation campaign to collect medical supplies and send them to the Ukrainian people. We are astonished by the commitment and continuous contribution of our clients and partners. To date, over 50 organizations have demonstrated their support of our mission by donating life-saving supplies, medications, and funds that have already been delivered to hospitals in Kyiv. With medications having already reached the hospitals of Kyiv this April, our initiative was also supported and shared by the media. Please keep reading to stay in the loop with the progress of our donation campaign.
War is never about conquest. All military conflicts always
cause suffering, grief, and thousands of deaths that could have been prevented.
Days and even years after a conflict, these three things haunt the people who
once went through it.
With the major portion of Russian forces retreating from the north of Ukraine, this country is still in the middle of the conflict. Thousands of people have died since early March all over the country. While the military atrocities continue in Southern and Eastern Ukraine, many innocent people, including children, get hit or die of missile strikes and booby traps planted by the aggressor. It is now or never that the people of Ukraine need help of the entire world. More medical supplies are needed to save the lives of those affected by the conflict. It is for this reason that WCH Service Bureau continues the donation campaign we organized in March.
Since we first shared our story in the previous edition of WCH Insights, many more organizations have brought medications and medical equipment to our office for shipment. To date, over 400 life-saving items have been donated by our friends, clients, and partners. Together, we have managed to collect the supplies worth $350,000 in total. This would have been impossible without the contribution of our respectful partner – Integra Partners IPA, which has helped us to collect the supplies worth $140,000 together with its contracted DME suppliers.
WCH Service Bureau has already shipped 6 packages of donated supplies to Ukraine. A major part of the donation has already been handed out to the hospitals of Kyiv, and is currently distributed to the Ukrainian people.
These shipments are possible thanks to a significant self-sacrificing contribution of our shipping partners: Velox International and Nova Poshta, working tirelessly and delivering the supplies to Ukraine through Poland free of charge.
We keep track of all donations. Please feel free to access a regularly updated list of items here.
WCH Service Bureau is proud that our initiative is spreading across communities. On April 22, we shared our progress with the global audience on the News 12 Brooklyn TV channel. Speaking from a warehouse in Coney Island with piles of boxes behind her shoulders, Olga Khabinskay, our Director of Operations, has urged people not to stop humanitarian efforts toward Ukraine. Please watch this video for more details.
We hope that our example will motivate other organizations to step up and help the Ukrainian people. WCH is extremely thankful to everyone who has participated in this donation campaign and/or shared the news about its progress. Your commitment proves that responsibility, compassion, and kindness know no borders nor governments.
