32 tons of emergency medical supplies headed to Ukraine from Seattle
A cargo jet packed full of bandages, clean syringes, and other medical supplies is set to leave for Ukraine this week from Sea-Tac Airport. A group of nonprofit organizations, including Nova Ukraine and the Ukrainian Association of Washington State, donated $3.5 million in supplies to help Ukrainians fleeing violence.
“These supplies are needed all over Ukraine and will save many lives,” Igor Markov said Monday afternoon in front of a cargo jet at Sea-Tac Airport.
Markov is the Director of Nova Ukraine, one of the groups that coordinated the airlift. The Ukrainian Association of Washington State, the Ukrainian-American Cultural Association of Oregon, and Ukrainian Student Association at Stanford University partnered in obtaining and sorting the hundreds of boxes of supplies.
