Aid to Ukraine
The Saint John of God Polish Province is continuing to help the Ukrainians who have suffered as a result of the conflict. On 18 August 2022, the Provincial, Brother Francis, handed over a batch of medical equipment at the Warsaw Provincial Curia: fully equipped medical backpacks and first aid kits, tourniquets and a power generator. This was made possible thanks to funds donated by the Carmelite Sisters of Gdynia and funds raised by collections organised in the European Provinces of St John of God (Fatebenefratelli). Each medical backpack includes packs for the treatment of fractures, burns, wounds, emergencies, haemorrhages, a sheet stretcher, packs: respiratory and personal protection apparatus. The donations were received by Brother Mirosław Lech in Drohobycz, who will soon be delivering them to the front in the vicinity of Krematorsk to save the lives and health of both civilians and soldiers.
