On the Dnipropetrovsk Military Hospital and the Luhansk Oblast Children’s Clinical Hospital in Lysychansk

I have sent lists from both Dnipropetrovsk and Lysychansk to Samaritan’s Purse for potential donations. Samaritan’s Purse has been our largest supporter and has provided aid to so many of those under our care. They work quickly so I should hear back from them within a few days as to what they are able to ship immediately to the hospitals which I have elected to support.

На військовий шпиталь Дніпропетровська та Луганської обласної дитячої клінічної лікарні в м. Лисичанськ:

я послав списки з Дніпропетровська та Лисичанськ до з гаманець самарянина для потенційних пожертвувань. Гаманець самарянина був наш найбільший прихильником і надав допомогу так багато хто з тих під нашу турботу. Вони працюють швидко, так що я повинен почути від них протягом декількох днів про те, що вони здатні поставляти відразу до лікарні, який я вирішив підтримати.

More on the Internet Orphanage in Schastia

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 23, 2015

IMG_1115

Though The Fishermen is not prepared to provide assistance to the Internet orphanage in Schastia due to lack of adequate information, I did make contact with the UWO this morning as they specialize in evacuation of orphaned children in danger. These are the same people with whom I worked to help ensure the safe movement of 30,000 + children at the beginning of the war. If they see that Internet is eligible for assistance then at least the children will be moved outside the combat zone. Let’s all pray for the childrens’ safety and a peaceful resolution to this very complicated issue.

Докладніше про Інтернет притулку в Schastia:

хоча рибалки не готові надати допомогу Інтернет притулку в Schastia через брак адекватної інформації, я зробити контакт з на UWO сьогодні вранці, як вони спеціалізуються на евакуація дітей-сиріт в небезпеці. Це ж люди, з якими я працював для забезпечення безпечного руху 30000 дітей на початку війни. Якщо вони бачать, що Інтернет має право на допомогу, то принаймні дітей буде пересунуто за межами зони бойових дій. Давайте все молитися за безпеку на вихователем і мирного врегулювання на це дуже складне питання.

On the Internet Orphanage in Schastia

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 23, 2015

Shchastia 14

After careful consideration I am dropping the Internet orphanage in the embattled Ukrainian town of Schastia from our potential aid recipient list. During my visit I was not able to speak to the director, saw no children, and after numerous requests did not receive a list of needs. Without the above stated requirements I cannot in good conscience ask for donations from you or any of our regular donor agencies. It is sad but unavoidable.

На Інтернет притулку в Schastia:

після ретельного розгляду я впевнений, скидаючи Інтернет дитячого будинку в неприступного українського міста Schastia від наших потенційних допомоги отримувачами. Під час мого візиту я не зміг говорити директору, побачив ні дітей і після того, як численні прохання не отримав список потребує. Без вище заявив вимоги я не можу з чистою совістю просити пожертви від вас або будь-який з наших регулярних донорських агенцій. Це сумно, але неминуче.

On Helping the Lysychanjsk Children’s Hospital

In addition to the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Hospital, I have decided to take on the responsibility of providing care for the patients of the Children’s Hospital in Lysychanjsk. The hospital rests on the edge of a migrating combat zone, which means it comes under fire and occasional occupation by Russian troops. Since civilian movement is severely limited due to military restrictions the Lysychanjsk hospital must treat a far greater patient load (roughly 10,000 – many of which are children) as access to the main children’s hospital in Luhansk is barred by hostile forces. Lysychanjsk CH has an acute shortage of medicine, equipment and food due to overpopulation and the inability of the Ukrainian government to provide what is necessary. I have submitted a request for the most needed items and hope to prepare a shipment soon. Anything is better than nothing.

Progress on Ukrainian/American Military Medical Cooperation

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 18, 2015

While in Dnipropetrovsk I discussed a program incentive to place Ukrainian military doctors with US military doctors so that they may enhance their medical skills. Today I received word back from the US House of Representatives and the project took its first step forward. With any luck my initiative will be put into action shortly. I will keep you posted!

On the Importance of Establishing Logistics

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 17, 2015

children from poor families

receiving shipment

I have been questioned about the value of reconnoitering missions over supply missions. Put simply, a mission establishing logistics and needs is more important than one which delivers supplies. Why? We learned this lesson in the DR Congo wherein we lost $7,000 of material – we cannot take on faith that an orphanage has legitimate needs or even exists. We must have known eyes on the target, meet the administrators, see the children, and discern for ourselves what must be delivered. Just as important is establishing a trusted logistical path to ensure the supplies we send get to the target and are used properly. Since this is difficult to arrange we – The Fishermen – have limited our operations to just a few countries in order to protect our assets. The children need our supplies, not the bandits.
