My name is Halyna and I am a Ukrainian-American medical student. In the weeks since Russia's invasion of Ukraine, it has been difficult to focus on anything but the brutal reality of the war. For this reason, I am raising money for Razom, an organization that has been helping Ukraine since Russia's first invasion in 2014. Right now, Razom is focusing its efforts on delivering medical aid throughout Ukraine. All money donated will go directly from GoFundMe to Razom. Information on what Razom has accomplished so far can be found at this link: https://razomforukraine.org/tactical-medicine-deepdive/
Numerous hospitals have been destroyed and every day brings new humanitarian disasters. In the face of countless civilian casualties, delivering medical aid to Ukraine is essential. My time as a medical student has already shown me how stressful medical emergencies can be, but Ukrainian health professionals have to deal with severe traumas without the safety and resources of a modern hospital. My words do not do enough to convey the degree of tragedy, so I will leave some sources below:
I sincerely appreciate any donation to this GoFundMe. To see that my community here in Long Island cares about a cause so deeply personal to me is touching. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
