Ukraine has been attacked by Russian supported Separatists. Eastern Ukraine has been at war with these aggressors and brave Ukrainian warriors have lost limbs through this conflict. Ukraine is in desperate need of medical transport equipment, especially wheelchairs. This is our second year in this effort. In 2016 our Veterans post collected and sent 12 wheelchairs to Ukrainian hospitals and this was a good first effort.

This year we collected 36 wheelchairs (6 are motorized) and are asking for assistance in covering the shipping costs for this batch and subsequent donations of physical mobilization equipment.

Ukraine has been invaded and she stands as a barrier against further Russian encroachment into Europe. Ukrainian soldiers have been wounded in this conflict and they need our help. We need to ship these wheelchairs in the month of April, 2017.

Since the beginning of the undeclared war between Russia and Ukraine, more than 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers and volunteers have been injured. The Ukrainian American Veterans Post 32, Chicago, Illinois is determined to help some of the most seriously injured.

In 2016 10 manual wheelchairs and 2 motorized wheelchairs were ultimately shipped to Irpin Military Hospital, just outside of Kyiv, where soldiers from the war zone were brought for treatment and rehabilitation.

This year we have 30 manual and 6 motorized wheelchairs donated and awaiting shipment. The need is great and the cost of shipping has increased. We are thankful for your generosity.
