At the times of crisis, TEAMWORK is the key! March 10th 2022 was a historic day on which Mohanji Foundation teams from the entire Balkan region joined hands as one ’Mohanji Balkans team’ and together with ACT Serbia, ACT Montenegro and newly formed ACT Foundation Romania organized a swift fundraising initiative in order to deliver much needed health supplies, diapers and food for the newborn babies at the Chernivtsi Regional Children’s Hospital in Ukraine.
This humanitarian action marked the beginning of ACT 4 UKRAINE – a joint initiative of ACT Foundation, Mohanji International Foundation and ACT 4 Hunger, in answer to the humanitarian crisis in and around Ukraine. Through ACT 4 UKRAINE, we dedicate ourselves to swift action, unconditional support to all who require aid, complete transparency, utmost efficiency and compassion beyond the boundaries of nationality, religion and other man-made barriers.
Our team chose Chernivtsi as the first recipient of aid because it is the only children’s hospital in the region that provides much needed emergency medical care for children. The hospital has 260 beds and specialises in paediatric surgery, neurosurgery and general paediatrics. Badly affected by the war in Ukraine, they ran out of medical supplies. It was time to ACT fast. ACT Serbia volunteer Mirčea, in agreement with the hospital director Pavlok Vasil Orestovic, met with doctors Olena Vlasova and Andjela at the Romanian-Ukrainian border and directly handed over the donation consisted of 83kg of baby food, 890 boxes of medicines and 39 packs of diapers.
Sincerity and dedication of individual ACT volunteers, coupled with the genuine teamwork spirit, is at the very heart of ACT.
Mirčea’s determination, 10 hours of travel to the border crossing and urgent coordination and fundraising among the Mohanji Balkans and ACT teams, made this swift action possible.
“We truly thank you for providing charitable assistance to newborns!” were the heartfelt words of gratitude from Ms. Vlasova Olena while bidding farewell to Mirčea.
We would like to express our gratitude to all donors and volunteers who participated in the organisation of this action, as well as the pharmacy Dr. Max from Timisoara in Romania whose support was simply amazing.
This is only the beginning of our joint humanitarian effort of supporting ALL who require help at the midst of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
Next step is to establish a humanitarian hub where food, clothing and medical care will be provided for all refugees from Ukraine at this border crossing. So do expect more updates from our end in the days to come.
