A donation of medical supplies was made to the Ukraine through the Leeds Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at St James’ Hospital as part of a Yorkshire Aid Convoy. Jena English, Research Assistant Practitioner and Emily Bennett, Senior Clinical Support worker spent time organising and packing much needed supplies with the support of the whole team at the CRF. 

This is a regular donation of surplus items which are made to various charities. On this occasion the donation of dressings, blood tubes, phlebotomy packs and other medical supplies were sent as part of convoy of vehicles from Leeds to Ukraine. The team at the CRF were amazed to see an email sent from the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine expressing their thanks to the Yorkshire Aid Convoy. Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said “ ...express deepest gratitude to your organisation for providing over 60 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine ……….the medical supplies and medicines contained in your humanitarian shipments are helping civilians and the military to provide first aid “
