Apostolove: a humanitarian mission to the city of Unbreakability.

Apostolove: a humanitarian mission to the city of Unbreakability. - Rise of Ukraine

You don’t have to be big to do great things.

Apostolove is a small frontline town that gathered all its strength and courage during the reoccupation of the Kherson region and left no one without humanitarian, medical and legal assistance πŸ’ͺ🏻

On one day, the aggressor country divided the lives of the townspeople into “before” and “after” – when the town was subjected to a damaging attack that destroyed almost all educational institutions.

“Our new lyceum, which had just been renovated, was completely destroyed. It’s hard to imagine that there could have been children here and it would have had terrible consequences,” says one of the parents, Tatiana.

The doctors here also worked hard every day with injured soldiers who were brought back from difficult and fierce battles.

“Back then, we all practically lived in the hospital, from the accountant to the chief doctor. It was very hard to look at the young guys and realize that they could never live like they used to,” recalls Liudmyla, one of the medical staff members. 

“The Rise of Ukraine Charity Foundation is constantly helping doctors, because they save lives every minute, and without our help, they may be left without the necessary medicines and tools at any moment. Because the flow of those who need treatment is endless and uninterrupted, and there are not enough resources on our own.

This time, thanks to our French partners, Union des ukrainiens en Bretagne,SolidaritΓ© Bretagne-Ukraine and AFUCA, we have delivered to the Apostolivska City Hospital  bandages, Hollister hydrophilic intermittent catheterization probes, hydrophilic disposable catheters and solution (water, salt), glucometer, infusion systems, resuscitation systems, compresses, plasters, children’s stoma bags, stoma bags, urinary bags, venous and subcutaneous infusion kits, postoperative wound care kits, surgical instrumentation, ostomy plates, body wash gloves, saline, syringes, Bionolyte G5, a wheelchair toilet, medical ducks and antiseptics, which amounted to a total of 3,598 units of medical supplies and medicines.

Every time our team goes on a new humanitarian mission, our hearts break with pain, horror, and helplessness. We realize that there is no safe place in Ukraine as long as at least one enemy is on our land. But we do our best to help the military, doctors and ordinary Ukrainians and bring our Victory closer.

Everything will be with Rise πŸ’™πŸ’›
