Our 2000km journey through blizzards in a cramped van to get help to Ukraine

Last week I was on a 2,000km car ride in a van carrying medical supplies to Ukraine. You may be wondering how this happened. Two medical friends of mine, Dr. Brian McManus and Fergal Murphy told me about a group of Ukrainian doctors working in Ireland who had started a charity called Medical Help Ukraine. We offered help. In recent weeks, the doctors have received a shopping list of medical supplies from their friends who work in hospitals in Ukrainian cities like Kyiv, Kharkiv and Chernihiv.

Items most needed include bandages, incubators, ventilators, defibrillators, bandages, aluminum foil blankets and first aid kits. We have received supplies from several donors including Glennons Pharmacy in Glasthule and St Luke’s Hospital Kilkenny. We managed to get a van kindly donated by PRL in Kilkenny and last weekend we fitted it with the supplies with the help of David Hall of Lifeline Ambulances who has coordinated the overall effort and donated ambulances.
