We’re up early this morning to get to the central train station in Kyiv. Once again, we’ll make the 13-hour ride from eastern to western Ukraine. We’ll then have a 3-hour ride to Krakow, Poland.
The train is not quite so full traveling away from Kyiv. In fact, one report said that twice as many Ukrainians were returning to their homeland as were leaving. One can certainly feel that the tide has turned in this war, and that the Ukrainians are feeling vanquished. There is a sense of jubilation in the air that Ukraine will prevail. The world hopes so!
I have a jumble of thoughts and emotions and reactions going through my mind. Perhaps there will be another time to share them.
For now, though, I, along with the rest of the world, will ask myself what I should do in the face of this horrific disaster.
Ukrainian doctors are asking us for medications and supplies, particularly wound vacuum systems, as well as medical volunteers to join them in treating the wounded.
As I asked myself two years ago as the COVID pandemic exploded… “If not now, when? If not me, who?”
Please consider supporting the efforts of Global Care Force as we continue to send supplies and medical professionals to Ukraine.
