Vinnytsia doctors have already received the 4th ambulance from benefactors from abroad since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. This time, the car along with equipment and medicines arrived in Vinnytsia from New York.

The transfer of the car became possible thanks to the Ukrainian diaspora in the USA. Caring residents of New York purchased a sanitary car at their own expense, serviced it and delivered it to Europe.

The car will strengthen the Mother and Child Center. There, it will be improved with an artificial lung ventilation device and monitoring equipment, turning it into a full-fledged resuscitation vehicle. In addition, a special transport resuscitation incubator for newborns will be installed. From now on, the institution will be able not only to transport small patients, pregnant women and women giving birth, but also to provide other assistance on the field - in particular, palliative and diagnostic.

"Since the first days of the war, we have received a large number of requests from different continents about what help is needed. Among the priorities is the preservation of people's lives and health," says Mayor Serhii Morhunov. "This car will be useful for our doctors, because now they will be able to provide high-quality medical care more quickly - both to children and adults. I would like to express my thanks from all the people of Vinnytsia to the world community, directly to the New York community and to our diaspora for taking such an initiative."

"The body shape of this car allows the team of doctors to work standing up. This is quite important when providing long-term medical care to patients in a serious condition. In addition, such a body allows to accommodate more medical equipment," says the director of the health care department Oleksandr Shysh. "Our American partners also handed over tests for COVID-19, protective equipment and consumables together with the car. That is, we will be able to use this car for a month without additional equipment."

Also, representatives of the diaspora, who organized the delivery of the car, handed over a letter for Vinnytsia residents. "Ukrainians, hold on! The whole progressive world is helping you. I am very glad that I was able to help you with something in these horror-filled days of war," wrote one of the patrons from New York, Borys Horodetskyi, who himself experienced the horrors of the Second World War when he was a child, in an address to Vinnytsia residents. Vinnytsia will continue to cooperate with the volunteer center of New York in the humanitarian direction.
