Shield HealthCare Supports Ukraine

Helping our communities in a time of need is a core value of Shield HealthCare. The past two years have permanently marked us through the challenges we have faced both as individuals and as communities. Although we cannot restore life to the way it was before natural disasters, pandemics or armed conflict, we believe in the cumulative impact of helping others.

In March, Shield HealthCare began working with our healthcare partners on opportunities to provide wound care supplies to the Ukrainian people. Our thoughts remain with the millions of people affected by this conflict, including customers and employees who have loved ones in harm’s way.

Would you like to help? Below are some organizations providing support:

Ukrainian Red Cross: Founded 101 years ago and comprised of over 4 million members, the Ukrainian Red Cross aids Ukrainians during natural disasters, humanitarian crises, and, of course, civil conflicts

International Committee of the Red Cross: Established in 1863, the ICRC operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war.

Voices of Children Foundation: Established in 2015, Voices of Children provides no-cost psychological support to Ukrainian children who are impacted by armed conflicts.

UNICEF: For the past 8 years, UNICEF has been working across eastern Ukraine to provide medical aid, food, psychological support and mine safety training for children, young people and their parents.

USA For UNHCR: This D.C.-based organization is devoted to supporting refugees worldwide and recently established a fund dedicated to supporting displaced Ukrainians.

CARE USA: A prominent humanitarian organization since its inception during World War II, CARE is committed to providing Ukrainians with immediate aid, including food, clean water, and hygiene kits.
