Rome Health’s Materials Management and Pharmacy teams donate medical supplies to Ukraine


ROME — As the conflict between Ukraine and Russia continues, so too do the global community’s efforts to lend assistance to Ukraine.

President Joseph Biden, who spoke by phone with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for about 40 minutes Wednesday, June 15, said the U.S. would send $225 million more in humanitarian assistance to provide safe drinking water, medical supplies, food, health care, shelter and money for families to buy essential items.

However, local support is also being offered.

“Since March, Rome Health’s Materials Management and Pharmacy teams have been working with volunteers from the First Ukrainian Pentecostal Church to donate medical supplies to help support the people in Ukraine,” according to a hospital spokeswoman.

“The hospital has donated medications, bandages, wheelchairs, and other medical equipment and supplies to assist hospitals and other medical facilities care for the victims of Russia’s attack on the country and its people. Each month, the volunteers from Syracuse come to collect the items that the hospital is no longer using to arrange for transport to Ukraine,” a statement continued.
