The Rotary Club of Milwaukee is a lead participant in the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America’s (UMANA) effort to deliver urgently needed medical supplies to Ukraine for use during war in field, military, and community hospitals. Supplies have donated by medical manufacturers, hospitals and physicians.
We are excited to report that our 45 pallets from the June sorting and packing event made it to Warsaw, passed customs and are in transit to Lviv! We have received some additional pallets of supplies that now need to be prepped for shipment to Ukraine.
We will host the next event on Saturday, October 1st. Volunteers, age 16 and older, are needed to help sort and package medical supplies at a warehouse in Germantown. These supplies will be sorted, packaged and labeled for quick deployment, transported by truck to O’Hare airport, flown by MAERSK to Poland, unloaded and transported to UKR locations under supervision of UKR Ministry of Health.
Medical Professionals: There is a special need for medical professionals—e.g. doctors, nurses, PAs, technicians—to guide the sorting process. Trauma and operating room experience is a real plus.
Non-Medical Professionals: Volunteers are also needed to assemble supplies in boxes, keep track of inventory in each box, securely tape and package and complete pallets
There will be three shifts. While all volunteers 16 years of age and older are welcome and appreciated throughout the day, the first shift will require a lot of volunteers who are medical professionals to identify and sort the supplies. The last shift will be devoted to wrap up and clean up in the warehouse.
- 8 am – 12 pm
- 11 am – 3 pm
- 2 – 5 pm (Clean Up Crew)
