Recently Vinnytsia for the fourth time received humanitarian
aid from the American sister city Birmingham (Alabama). These
are ten boxes of medical instruments and supplies.
In September 2014, Vinnytsia City Council sent letters to its
partner cities with the request to provide all possible assistance to Vinnytsia
military forces, wounded and injured in the ATO zone. Birmingham, the American
sister city of Vinnytsia, located in Alabama, immediately responded to the
letter. On November 25th, 2014 came the first
batch of humanitarian aid from Birmingham.
Recently the fourth batch of aid from the
residents of Birmingham came to Vinnytsia. “People
of Birmingham gradually collect medical equipment and supplies for our soldiers.
then when they arrive to Vinnytsia, we transfer them to the East along with
another humanitarian relief. This
time there are 10 boxes of medical instruments and supplies. They are of
very high quality and will be useful in the East. Humanitarian
cargo from Birmingham is not only financial support but also moral, as our
soldiers feel that our friends abroad also think of them along with Vinnytsia
residents," said assistant to the Mayor on international relations Olga
Among humanitarian aid there are systems for blood transfusion, catheters, dressing materials, disposable surgical instruments, facilities for personal hygiene and more.
Help from Birmingham was sent to ATO fighters with humanitarian cargo from Vinnytsia.
