Military Hospital in Lviv

We regularly deliver medical equipment donated directly as well as medical equipment purchased from donated funds, bringing it to the door of hospitals and handing it directly over to the doctors cooperating with us.

We have been to Kharkiv and Lviv three times, one time to Mościska and Kiev. We took, among other devices, a mobile X-ray and ultrasound machines, operating tables, infusion pumps, and over 1,500 surgical instruments. The last transport - to Lviv - included a mobile X-ray machine and kits for external stabilization. Next week we will publish a report from our visit to the hospital at Łyczakowska.
