With every shipment of donated medical aid, Razom’s Health Team, which collects and delivers large in-kind donations, hears about the impact of its work directly from Ukrainian medical practitioners. Sometimes, these messages are bittersweet, but they remind us why we must #SupportUkraine.
Recently, we shipped 30 jars of Weaver Ten20 Conductive Paste and four boxes of topiramate (an anticonvulsant medication) — donated by Dr. Soma Sengupta at the University of Cincinnati — to Dr. Mariia Pavliuk, a Pediatric Neurologist/Neurophysiologist at St. Nicholas Hospital in Lviv.
Dr. Pavliuk and her colleagues in the Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery will use these items to conduct EEG tests and detect possible seizure activities in their pediatric patients. Here is what Dr. Pavliuk shared with us after receiving the donation:
“Thank you so so much! I received everything! And unpacked today! It somehow raised my mood, because today I discovered that a colleague of mine from Vinnytsia died because of a missile attack that happened a couple of weeks ago… He had burn injuries on more than 40% of skin and didn’t survive. He was my age, he had a family, and he also built plans for how to improve pediatric neurology care in Ukraine. And now he is dead because of a rocket, which attacked him while he was at work… I am destroyed… Please take care, and thank you for everything you are doing for us! Big hugs!”
