The Zhytomyr Hospital Challenge

Our Working Nurse community is coming together to heal a war-ravaged hospital in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. They are in desperate need of equipment. Can you help?

Every donation makes a difference!
$18,718 of $30,000 raised

YOUR DONATION IS 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Our fiscal sponsor is 501(c)(3) nonprofit Institute for Education, Research, and Scholarships (IFERS).

Vitaly

Ukrainian doctor on blue background.

(GENERAL MANAGER & CHIEF SURGEON): I am the only doctor at Zhytomyr Hospital trained to perform endoscopies. I do not have adequate equipment, so many patients with GI injuries are turned away.

I urgently need endoscopy devices.

Bogdan

(GENERAL PRACTICE M.D.): Because I do not have adequate cardiac equipment, patients with heart conditions must travel to big cities hours away for treatment. Even if they are having heart attacks!

I urgently need cardiology equipment.

Alina

Ukrainian nurse on blue background.

(LAB NURSE): I manually analyze blood samples using a microscope. Our patients wait weeks for results. Modern devices give up to 50 indicators within 10 minutes.

I urgently need new lab equipment.

Andryi

Ukrainian nurse on blue background.

(TRAUMA NURSE): I am using Soviet-issue blood pressure cuffs from 1962. This ancient equipment makes it impossible to take accurate readings for my patients.

I urgently need new BP cuffs and glucometers.

Inessa

(FAMILY MEDICINE M.D.): I manage critical care for our sickest patients. Due to our hospital’s limited equipment, I am not able to treat all the patients who need my help.

I urgently need CT, MRI, and angiography systems along with a treadmill and stress test equipment.

Bagheera

Last year, when the university dorm where I lived with my owner was badly shelled, he was taken to the hospital. Sadly, he did not survive. The kind staff at Zhytomyr Hospital adopted me and now I am every patient’s comfort pet.

“Dyakuyu” (thank you) for helping us!

YOUR DONATIONS WILL GO FAR. The exchange rate of the U.S. dollar to the Ukraine hryvnia (UAH) is extremely favorable, and the hospital’s supplier can purchase the equipment Zhytomyr Hospital needs much more cheaply in Ukraine than in the U.S. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!
