Donations Needed: Medical Supplies & Other Ways to Support Ukraine

Many of our members, their clients, colleagues and friends, are directly impacted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Europe is facing the fastest growing refugee crisis since World War II. The US, UK and EU, as well as most other countries around the world have united in support of Ukraine and its people.

Global commercial interconnectedness has helped foster peace for nearly 80 years. The BABCPHL is a “connector” organization. Whether operating virtually or in person, the BABCPHL remit is to foster the development of valuable ties between the US and the UK. As such, we are in constant communication with members and regional and foreign government partners.

To advance our mission, and hopefully offer you opportunities to assist, we are sharing information from BABCPHL regional partner, Tony Ceballos, Director, US Commercial Service Philadelphia, US Department of Commerce/International Trade Administration, which lists ways healthcare companies, organizations, trade associations and non-profits can offer help. The request is primarily intended for healthcare related organizations and companies with a European presence, but given the urgency of the situation in Ukraine we are assisting in widely disseminating this to a broader audience.

Please see below details. The first section refer to how to send urgently needed medical supplies, and the second section lists how to provide monetary support.

  1. Attached and listed below are medications, medical supplies, and equipment that are urgently needed as DONATIONS to the Polish and Romanian borders of Ukraine. Our office in Ankara is coordinating efforts should a company have a presence in Europe or would like to contribute, please contact our U.S. Commercial Service Officer, Andrew Glass (contact info below). He will provide specific geographical points where medications and supplies can be donated at the border.
