Acadian Ambulance is proud to support Project C.U.R.E.’s efforts in providing medical supplies to their Ukrainian partners.
Acadian donated 4 pallets of medical supplies to the organization’s Houston distribution center. The supplies include syringes, IV start kits, filtered IV extension sets, razors, suture trays and IV bags.
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to address the staggering shortage of medical resources around the world. Since then, the organization has become the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies, equipment and services to doctors and nurses serving the sick and dying in more than 135 countries.
Since the start of the invasion in Ukraine, Project C.U.R.E. has sent 17 emergency relief air shipments of medical supplies and equipment to Ukrainian partners, has staged and shipped over 750 pallets of relief, and has more shipments in the planning stages.
Janet Thomason, Director of National Procurement – International Headquarters, said, “Donors to our Caring for Ukraine Campaign are continuing to change the world and save lives by supporting Project C.U.R.E.’s important work in the region.”
“Being able to provide a donation of medical supplies to personnel in Ukraine is an embodiment of our ‘One team. One mission.’ motto. We know these supplies will be put to good use and we’re glad to support those working to save lives during the turmoil,” said Acadian Ambulance President Justin Back.
Project C.U.R.E. is regularly ranked as one of the top charities in America by Charity Navigator, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Guidestar, Top Nonprofits, and Forbes Magazine, and was recently given a Top COVID-Relief distinction by Charity Navigator.
