Medical student Bre Stafford looks at a surgery instrument that she got out of a donation bin at Memorial Hospital North for third world countries. Stafford is working with Nova Ukraine, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine. Stafford is a third-year student at the Colorado Springs branch of the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Eager to help, Stafford began networking with her med-school classmates and faculty members, learning where she could collect medical supplies to ship overseas. She contacted the nonprofit Nova Ukraine, which has support teams on the ground in Ukraine and in neighboring countries.
