Together with its member hospitals, New Jersey Hospital Association has mobilized medical supplies to support Ukrainian hospitals. Tons of medical aid have been sent to Ukraine in cooperation between the UNWLA and NJHA. We also enjoyed overwhelming support from hospital staff: some even hosted their own fundraisers to support Ukraine and wore blue and yellow to work.
Support of the hospitals and general and tactical medicine remains our priority. We also sent medicine and medical supplies to the outpatient clinic and a hospital in Mykolaiv, both of which had been bombed. Besides the general support of Ukrainian hospitals, we allocated funding to purchase IFAK and Blood Transfusion kits, Wound Vacs, and External Fixators. Our efforts also yielded tons of medical supplies shipped to Ukrainian hospitals in Kyiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Bila Tserkva, and Lviv and distributed among other hospitals in need. Initiative E+, with which we partnered to purchase oxygen concentrators for COVID-19 patients in 2021, used its commendable mobility to deliver medical aid even in the hardest-hit territories on the frontline.
