Almost 30,000 glucose meters with strips provided for people with diabetes by Direct Relief Foundation were distributed by UDF to cities and villages, to children's hospital emergency rooms in military hospitals and to the ophthalmology clinic, where children with eye wounds were found to have high sugar levels.
TOTAL as of May 31, 2022, Direct Relief's efforts to respond to the crisis in Ukraine have resulted in the delivery of more than 650 tons of emergency medical supplies valued at more than $315 million. https://diabetesatlas.com.ua/zvit...
The geography is extensive: volunteers and the Red Cross have even delivered supplies to occupied cities and communities along the line of contact. UkrPochta has been working well for a month now, delivering our heavy parcels across the country, at the request of regional and district hospitals, to territorial social assistance centers, diabetic NGOs, and UDF branches.
"Organizing the logistics of so many emergency goods, is not an easy task even in peacetime, and in times of war, it has become a real challenge. I am glad that despite all the difficulties, we coped and were able to deliver aid to those who needed it, even in the temporarily occupied territories and war zones." Kirill Goncharuk, UDF board member and CheckEye CEO.
