UKVets4Ukraine, founded by UK vet and second generation Ukrainian Antonina (Nina) Babchuk, have worked with the Ukrainian Medical Association to establish direct links with both human and veterinary surgeons working in the war zone and are sending supplies direct to where they are needed most.
“People just want to do something tangible,” said Nina. “We see horrific scenes on the television every day and when we hear from vets and medics on the ground that they don’t have the supplies they need, what can we do but try and get those supplies to them? We have been collecting physical donations from across the UK and are now establishing ways people can buy medical supplies in the UK that we take out to Ukraine. I am humbled by the support we have been receiving from vets in the UK, but there is so much more that they need out there.”
The more we can raise, the more we can send.
