The Hungarian Human Rights Foundation (HHRF) has partnered with Hungarian American Coalition (HAC) and Carpathian Foundation to purchase and deliver a mobile medical pediatric unit to Odessa Memorial Hospital, which arrived there on August 3rd.
The mobile medical pediatric unit consists of two 20-foot foldable, fully equipped containers (CN20) constructed by Continest Technologies, a Hungarian company that develops container solutions for short-term use. The arrival and placement of the two containers was coordinated by the Ukrainian army stationed at the Odessa Rehabilitation Hospital, as well as the City Council. Fully equipped, the units are being used at the hospital but can be moved to other locations in need of emergency medical care.
The Hungarian Human Rights Foundation has collected $32,000 in donations, which was used to purchase this life-saving piece of medical equipment. This effort was aided by former New York State Governor George E. Pataki and his foundation, which has additionally made generous donations for housing, food, and healthcare in Ukraine. Hungarian – American sisters Erzsébet (Lisa) and Marianne Cholnoky have been indispensible to the sucess of this initiative.
The Hungarian Human Rights Foundation expresses its heartfelt thanks to all our generous donors and requests further donations on our homepage www.hhrf.org by indicating ‘Aid to Hungarian and Ukrainian refugees.’ You may also mail your check earmarked “Ukraine Refugee Aid” to HHRF, P. O. Box J, Gracie Station, New York, NY 10028.
The Hungarian Human Rights Foundation distributes 100 percent of all Ukrainian relief earmarked donations via our partner organization and will provide a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt receipt for your records.
