The Co-Pilot Project (CPP) is an initiative that aims to address the significant deficit in high quality neurosurgical and spine surgery training in Ukraine, a country of 45 million people in eastern Europe. Just as a co-pilot acts as another set of eyes and ears for the pilot, our mission is to send surgeons from North America to mentor and aid Ukrainian surgeons through difficult cases.
Our wonderful toy drive volunteers are no strangers to providing support to children in Ukraine. They’ve been sending care packages (and more) to families for over two years. In May, our Toy Drive team decided that they wanted to do something big. That big project was #SchoolToyDrive. The goal was to fill new backpacks with supplies that the kiddos would find useful and fun.
After a summer of hard work, our volunteers bought and filled 232 backpacks with school supplies and sent to 8 volunteer centers in Ukraine to distribute to children of ATO victims.
Big thanks to our Toy Drive volunteers for putting together and sending gifts for the little ones in the Karapchivskiy Orphanage (40 kids, ages 6-8) in Karapchiv, Chernivets’ka oblast, Ukraine. Thinking of the future of Ukraine.
Razom has provided a $3,000 grant to the Support Hospitals in Ukraine project. The project is committed to raise $100,000 to send five 40-foot containers to Ukrainian hospitals in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and other areas in need. Five containers will equate to more than $2 million worth of medical equipment and supplies that are specifically requested by hospitals in Ukraine.
