NRS Healthcare Ukraine donation image

NRS Healthcare, in conjunction with charity Physionet, has donated 45 beds and 40 pressure relief cushions to the Military Hospital in Lviv, Ukraine to support people affected by the ongoing crisis.

The delivery, made by Physionet, included beds, cushions, and various other items required by the hospital.

Paul Cairns, Director of Mobilisation at NRS Healthcare, who was integral in the organisation of the delivery, commented: “I’m incredibly proud that with the support of our long-time partner, PhysioNet, we have been to support the people of Ukraine at this terrible time.

“We weren’t able to recycle or use these beds and rather than them going to waste, we would prefer they go to the people who need them.

“We will continue to offer assistance where we can, either through larger corporate donations such as this or through more localised initiatives at our local service centres.”

In addition to the recent donation of hospital equipment, a number of NRS Healthcare service centres have made individual donations to the Ukraine Humanitarian appeal.

Recently, NRS Healthcare staff in Buckinghamshire donated mobility equipment and “much-needed” items such as blankets, toiletries, medicines and nappies, to support a local appeal run by Ukrainian nationals who wanted to do everything to help those affected.

As the Disasters Emergency Committee explains: “Intense conflict is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across Ukraine, with another 7 million people displaced inside the country.

“Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.”
