CF “Patients of Ukraine” created the coordination center to fight COVID-19 pandemic in the first week of disease incidence in Ukraine. The Foundation raises money to protect health workers, procures, distributes and delivers aids to health facilities. Also the Foundation consults partners, donors and NGOs intending to provide assistance.

Assistance to health workers for three months

Mission of the Foundation is to protect health workers from coronavirus infection. The safe conditions will allow them to stay healthy and save patients with COVID-19.

We procure personal protection equipment (PPE) for health professionals. PPE creates the barrier saving from infection. We procure masks/respirators, shields or goggles to protect respiratory tract from infection. Also we procure protective suits, boot covers, gloves and sanitizers.

Together with our partners during three months we have purchased and/or delivered 363 628 different PPE items:

  • 89 900 masks;
  • 76 598 respirators;
  • 75 530 gloves;
  • 70 860 protective suits;
  • 20 325 isolation gowns;
  • 12 750 boot covers;
  • 8 005 shields/goggles;
  • 7 000 caps;
  • 2 800 aprons;
  • 1 860 bottles of sanitizer (various volumes).

Also we procured and/or delivered 3,000 diapers and 500 tubes of hand cream.

In addition to PPE, we acquire medical equipment that allows doctors to save more lives of patients with COVID-19. For three months we acquired and delivered 138 items of medical equipment, in particular:

  • 95 monitors (45 are installed and 50 are in the process of installation) connected to lung ventilators. This allows doctors to monitor the patient’s condition in real time and immediately provide intensive care;
  • 42 oxygen concentrators, which allow doctors to save patients with COVID-19 and prevent severe complications;
  • 1 lung ventilator.

Another 16 oxygen concentrators and more than 10,000 PPE items procured by us are on the way to the hospitals.

Special thanks to the party Golos for their help in creating a wide network of volunteers.
