Update: We are planning to send everything next week. We already paid all the necessary supplies with our own money: $6700.
Helping Ukraine is defending Democracy, Freedom, and helping a country against tyranny. My heart is breaking when I see all the destruction and pain inflicted on the people of Ukraine. For our second round of Donation, we are going to send 60 first aid kits that will help first responders to save lives by controlling massive blood loss from missing limbs or open fractures caused by the shrapnel in the Russian bombs in the hottest spots in Ukraine. This will fulfill part of an official request from the 24th Mechanical Brigade. Our Trusted contact Taras Fito transmitted to us. If you want to read more about what his organization is doing In Ukraine, please read my previous posts.
Maiia, Nathalie's niece, when to the Red Bank Library and read to us this Emily Dickinson's poem:
"If I can stop one Heart from breaking I shall not live in vain If I can ease one Life the Aching Or cool on Pain
Or help one fainting Robin Unto his Nest again I shall not live in Vain."
Each kit cost us $110 to put together. Your help would be greatly appreciated. You can send any amount of money by - Venmo David-Halbout - Zelle 732-403-0400 or - Paypal https://paypal.me/DHalbout (option send money to a friend) Please share this post. Thank you very much. David Halbout.
First responders in Kharkiv, this scene is the same anywhere in Ukraine. The Russian bombs cause extensive damage and massive blood loss because of the shrapnel they contain.
