The humanitarian Ukraine Appeal, organised by the Primrose Hill and Belsize Park communities has had some fantastic support and thanks go to all who’ve helped and donated.
Since the campaign began, nine vans have arrived in Ternopil, Western Ukraine. The supplies are then distributed directly to children’s hospitals, maternity hospitals and hospitals treating the wounded.
So far they’ve been able to purchase a hospital generator for the National Cancer Institute in Kiev and an ultrasound machine.
They’ve worked with six schools to raise donations, supply hundreds of handmade cards and sent food and medical supplies to an orphanage.
Daniel Harvey is now organising a fundraiser to make sure the momentum continues. The aim is to raise £100,000 to provide urgent medical supplies, medical equipment and transportation costs for Ukrainian hospitals.
Daniel is working alongside volunteer doctors and staff from the North Central London NHS Consortium – Royal Free London, North Middlesex University Hospital, and The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, headed up by Doctor Louisa Shovel and Doctor Maya Zosmer.
They’re working directly with their partners in Ternopil to collect and purchase items that are urgently requested.
