Substantial gift will sponsor an entire cargo plane of medical supplies to Ukraine
CENTENNIAL, Colo., May 23, 2022 — Project C.U.R.E., the world’s largest supplier of donated medical supplies and equipment to resource-limited countries, recently received a $300,000 gift from the APA Corporation to support continued emergency medical shipments to the people of Ukraine.
Since the start of the invasion on February 24, Project C.U.R.E. has completed over 20 emergency shipments of emergency medical supplies and equipment throughout Ukraine, including the APA-sponsored shipment of emergency relief beds, surgical equipment, trauma supplies, and general medical supplies. This shipment was packed and loaded from Project C.U.R.E.’s Chicago distribution center, and departed the U.S. on Saturday, May 21.
An additional 30 shipments are schedule to deliver aid to Poland and Ukraine in the coming weeks from Project C.U.R.E.’s seven U.S. locations throughout the country.
“Project C.U.R.E. remains committed to continuing our important work of sending medical supplies and equipment to the people of Ukraine,” said Dr. Douglas Jackson, President/CEO of Project C.U.R.E. “We can only do this with the steadfast support of important partners, including our friends at the APA Corporation. Because of their significant contribution, Project C.U.R.E. was able to charter an entire cargo plane exclusively for these important supplies. We know from our contacts on the ground how valuable these shipments are. The impact of this donation from APA Corporation will be immeasurable in terms of lives saved, and we are incredibly thankful for this incredible endorsement in our mission.”
Shipments of medical cargo will be delivered to the distribution hub “Help Ukraine Center” in Poland, and from there it will be transferred to Ukrainian Ministry of Health to address the critical needs on the ground. For more information, visit projectcure.org/Ukraine.
