Appeal for donations at Nantwich Clinic for Ukraine

Volunteers and Nantwich Clinic have launched a fresh collection appeal for first aid and medical supplies for Ukrainian civilians and soldiers injured in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Nantwich resident Kostia Medovnikov, originally from Ukraine, has made direct contact with a Ukrainian charity in the western city of Lviv.

They have helped to draw up a list of vital supplies refugee families are in desperate need of.

Supplies will be sent directly from Nantwich on Friday March 25 to Poland.

From there they will be collected and taken for redistribution in Ukrainian hospitals and medical camps in some of the worst hit cities including Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol.

Kostia said: “We are relying on the kindness of spirit and generosity of the Nantwich people to get the help directly to the people who need it as quickly as possible.”

Residents are urged to bring any donations to the Nantwich Clinic’s new Health Hub off Newcastle Road, opposite the entrance of Cheerbrook farm shop.

The Clinic first began to take in donations soon after Russia launched its invasion and were soon inundated.
