Recently, at the request of the Ministry of Health, the next tranche from the humanitarian organization Direct Relief arrived. 

Ukraine received 76 tons of medical devices, including medicines for emergency care, for the treatment of injuries and wounds, as well as medicines for chronic diseases, oxygen concentrators and antiviral pills against COVID-19.

“Since the beginning of the full-scale war unleashed by russia, our doctors continue to work 24/7 in extremely difficult conditions and provide assistance to the victims. Many thanks to our international partners who responded to the request of the Ministry of Health and helped provide healthcare institutions with everything necessary so that doctors continue to save the most valuable thing — the life and health of Ukrainians,” said Oleksii Yaremenko.
