The Ukrainian Association of North Carolina, in partnership with Alex Gowen, Director of the aid and relief organization The Fishermen in Raleigh, made a significant contribution to the Ukrainian Army and the Children’s Hospital of Luhansk oblast.
$1,800 from the proceeds of the Association’s 10th Anniversary dance were donated to provide support for the 24th Ukrainian Tank Battalion. With this money Kyiv volunteers Svitlana and Yurij Polyakov bought equipment the soldiers requested and delivered it to the front. The soldiers express their gratitude for this assistance:
Andrej Hnatov, Lesya ZInchuk’s husband, obtained a bronchoscope for the Children’s Hospital of Luhanks oblast. Yurij Polyakov got additional parts to it in Kyiv and Alex delivered it to the hospital in Lysychansk:
The Lysychansk Children’s Hospital needs a special pump mechanism which works in concert with the bronchoscope to remove tracheobronchial foreign particles – quite a serious problem over here in this part of Ukraine. If you have a used one which needs replacing WE’LL TAKE IT!!!
Alex obtained some medical instruments that were distributed between the hospital and a military medical unit:

Andrej Hnatov and I are shipping to Ukraine, among other things, over 100 parts that will be used to build at least 10 DRONES. By very specific requests from volunteers of “The Aid of Dnipro” we have spent over $3000 just on this particular shipment, but the help these boxes will bring is priceless!!! One of these flying objects can save not one soldier – but a whole battalion! Please join us, donate, tell your friends! Unfortunately, the war is not over yet! If you can help, please contact Lesia Zintchouk.
