In view of the Russian aggression to Ukraine, the Ukrainian Society of Vitreo-Retinal Surgery and the Ophthalmology Clinics in Ukraine asked us to organize support in connection with the problem with the supply of medical products.
In Poland, we organized the support system for our Ukrainian colleagues. There are a few ways how we can help them:
Please find the list of the articles below.
We collect materials in Rzeszów address:
Maciej Zagórski (Coordinator) OCHO (Prof. Zagorski Eye Surgery Center)
ul. Stanisława Moniuszki 8 35-017 Rzeszów, Poland
With Note: Please pass on to people in need in Ukraine.
Rzeszów has an airport and the parcels may be sent via airmail. We are sending the supplies further to Ukraine via Mountain Rescue Service across the Polish/Ukrainian border.
The aid may also be sent directly to Lviv:
Prof Ihor Novytskyy
Lviv Medical Center
Dovha street 56,
Ophthalmologists in Lviv redistribute these things further to combat territories.
Please inform me about any parcel you send so we can follow it.
