Medical Support for Kids With Genetic Diseases From Ukraine
Today, we are focusing all our efforts on Ukrainian children who battle rare diseases. As you may know, the situation in Ukraine right now is critical. Along with their compatriots, Ukrainian children with rare diseases and their families are trying to survive the devastation and horror of Vladimir Putin's brutal invasion.
Some Ukrainian families left their home country with nothing and became refugees elsewhere. Some are still in Ukraine with extremely limited access to medicine, rehabilitation therapy, and medical equipment.
Most kids with rare diseases need life-supporting items around the clock. With no outside help, these kids have a high risk of irreversible complications to their health.
Since February 2022 we sent our help to more than 200 Ukrainian families and covered their crucial medical needs worth $337,914.
Here is what we provide:
1. most needed medical supplies and medications,
2. portable noninvasive ventilators and oxygen concentrators
3. sitters, wheelchairs, and more!
4. personal grants to families in need to spend on medical expenses locally.
Let's stand together in kindness against the darkness and pain of war. Let's send the birds of hope to those who need them most!
