How we work

Thanks to tremendous support of our partners and the project model,
$1 of your donations enables us to ship to Ukraine
$25-27 of medical equipment and supplies.
Process preparing for a new shipment
Project CURE, our supply partner, collects surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals in different areas of the USA, and stocks them in their warehouses.
Our volunteer, certified by Project CURE, goes to Ukraine and performs in-person assessment of Ukrainian recipient hospitals’ needs. The volunteer works with the head doctors and business managers of recipient hospitals to ensure that the hospitals have trained MDs and existing infrastructure to work with the medical equipment provided by our non-profit.
“Support Hospitals in Ukraine” raises $25,000 per container to fund only two types of expenses:
(i) Project CURE operating costs and (ii) shipment to Ukraine.
Upon receipt of the funds, Project CURE packs a 40-ft container by matching receiving hospital’s request (compiled by a certified volunteer in conjunction with senior receiving hospital staff) and inventory on hand.
Once the supplies are selected, the final packing list is sent to the customs broker of our registered partner non-profit in Ukraine, who uses it to get humanitarian aid duty-free designation for the contents of the container from the Ukrainian government.
The container is shipped by sea, clears customs duty-free in Ukraine, and is released to the recipient hospitals. Hospitals’ officials sign receipt paperwork. A volunteer from “Support Hospitals in Ukraine” goes to each recipient hospital to ensure proper equipment transfer and ongoing follow-up.

VIDIA: Гуманітарний проект “Підтримка лікарень України” – три роки допомоги (Інфографіка) (March 11, 2017)

За три з половиною роки свого існування проект Support Hospitals in Ukraine, створений українцями у США, відправив в Україну три 40-футових контейнери з 1,6 млн доларів гуманітарного медичного вантажу для лікарень.

«У той час, як ми готуємося до відправки нашого 4-го контейнеру в партнерстві з Razom for Ukraine’s “Co-Pilot Project”, було цікаво подивитися на пройдений шлях та розвиток нашої ініціативи… За цей час ми мали честь працювати з багатьма партнерами в США та Україна, які зробили неоціненний вклад успіх нашої справи», – зазначив Віталій Дубіль. This IE EMBA Is Tackling The Humanitarian Crisis In Eastern Ukraine (January 12, 2017)

Whether it’s in or out of headlines, the Ukraine crisis continues. According to the UN, almost ten thousand have died since the conflict started in April 2014, and tens of thousands more have been left wounded.

“There’s a huge humanitarian crisis in Ukraine,” he says. “Most of our hospitals are underfunded by the state and have been since the restoration of Ukraine’s independence 25 years ago.

Для того, щоб зробити більш ефективним процес створення комунікаційної платформи, у інтерв’ю ми питаємо українських лідерів закордоном про їхні прагнення, проекти, взаємодію з українською державою та громадянським суспільством, про інші актуальні виклики і загрози, що стоять перед усіма нами. Для кращого розуміння ситуації у США ми звернулись до Віталія Дубіля, безперечно глобального та проактивного українця, що живе та працює у столиці Сполучених Штатів
