Humanitarian Aid for Vinnytsia Hospitals Has Arrived from Birmingham

1.JPGResidents of the US twin city of Birmingham (Alabama, USA) do not stop supporting Vinnytsia with humanitarian aid for medical purposes. The other day a regular batch of medical instruments and medical supplies arrived to benefit the city's hospitals.The first proceeds from the US city arrived in Vinnytsia in 2014, when military aggression by Russia began in eastern Ukraine. Medicines and instruments were intended to help the wounded military, so they were transferred to the war zone and the military hospital. Since then, Birmingham has sent more than 10 such humanitarian aid loads to Vinnytsia community.

On April 16, representatives of the Municipal Watch brought the parcels to the City Clinical Hospital # 1.

“We have delivered the cargo we received from our friends from the twin city of Birmingham. After consulting with the management of the health department, it was decided to transfer this cargo to hospital # 1. Currently, these are manipulation and urological kits, laryngoscopes, facilities for ventilation machines and other medical accessories. The City of Birmingham has been providing humanitarian assistance since 2014. We have repeatedly transferred it to the east for the wounded soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, to our military hospital, the regional children's hospital,” said the head of the Municipal Watch Vitalii Chihur.

The humanitarian cargo was received by Larysa Chorna, Medical Director of hospital # 1. She said that the help received would be of benefit not only to their institution but also to other city hospitals: “Patients who come to our hospital and other medical institutions suffer not only from coronavirus. Often, they require different surgical interventions, treatment of other diseases. Therefore, these means of providing medical assistance and individual care are essential. We will review the cargo and determine what we will leave with us and what we will pass on to our colleagues from other hospitals.”
