I received an urgent call from the frontlines of Ukraine for suture kits yesterday. One of our Canadian volunteers, who is a part of a medical evacuation team, said they lack basic medical supplies needed to save the wounded.
It's tragic to be a volunteer on the frontlines, risking your life to save another’s and then watch the one you rescued die because you didn’t have basic needles and thread (suture kits) to mend their wounds!
Thankfully in less than 24 hours, through a team effort, 10 boxes of medical supplies were gathered in Ukraine, boxed and shipped with the arrival date to the frontlines only a day and half away. Truly amazing what can be accomplished when everyone plays their part!
Now, 10 boxes might sound like a lot, but it is just a stop gap and will only last a short time.
The need for medical supplies is greater NOW than it has ever been in the entire year of this ugly, unjust war!
With your $10 donation to our Humanitarian Aid Fund we can purchase and ship one suture kit to the frontlines. Your gift empowers those risking their lives, in one of the most dangerous places in the world, to help save lives.
The ripple effect of one life saved affects many, but sadly the opposite is also true!
Our evacuation medical team is comprised of volunteers from Canada and the US who have the expertise and skills required to get the job done. But without supplies like Tactical CricKits, Stratafix devices and suture kits, lives are lost.
Tactical CricKits provide a clean working surface and contain all required items to perform a surgical cricothyrotomy in a tactical environment (an incision to open airway passages).
A Stratafix device is an antibacterial spiral knotless tissue control device that provides a more secure suture than traditional ones and is needed for larger wounds.
Suture kits are self-explanatory, in that they contain the basic materials needed to mend wounds.
Please donate to our Humanitarian Aid Fund, and we will make sure our brave volunteers get the medical supplies needed to help the injured and wounded.
The Bravery Foundation is based in Kelowna, BC and is a CRA registered charity. We issue tax receipts for donations made to purchase medical supplies for use in Ukraine.
