November 09,2009

Philadelphia, PA (UUARC) – One million flu masks and over 12,500 bottles of hand sanitizers were purchased by the United Ukrainian American Relief Committee,Inc. (UUARC) on Tuesday November 3, 2009 and flown to Ukraine.  On Friday, November 6 and Sunday, November 8,  “AeroSvit Ukrainian Airlines” regular non-stop flight VV132 left New York City with a total weight of 7.5 tons of humanitarian assistance. “AeroSvit Ukrainian Airlines” through the efforts of Vlada Austin, initiated a free cargo transportation program to accommodate the urgent need to fight the flu epidemic in Ukraine.



H1N1 Supplies being unloaded

The relief consignment arrived on Saturday, November 7, and Monday, November 9 in Kyiv. The shipments were received by the Kyiv representative of UUARC, Mrs. Vira Prynko, at Borispil in Kyiv and picked up by the representatives of the Oblastnij Derzhavni Administrations from Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv. The masks and hand sanitizers will go through customs in their respective oblasts.  Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts each received 300,000 masks and the Lviv oblast received 400,000 masks on Saturday. The hand sanitizers will be distributed to the three oblasts after clearing sanitation customs in Kyiv. Distribution of masks has begun in Ternopil.



Registration for H1N1 Supplies

Many people and organizations contributed to the quick community response. Shipment arrangements and coordination with government authorities in Ukraine were made by Consulate-General of Ukraine in Chicago, Illinois, Consul Konstantyn Kudryk and Deputy Consul Vladislav Dovhopyat.  Lviv UUARC representatives, Andrij Dyda and Alexandra Spirniak, worked with the three abovementioned oblasts. The cargo transportation service and the leading forwarding company granted their time, services, equipment, and packaging free of charge. Special thanks to David Hennessey  at AeroSvit Cargo, and  John Khodov at Delex Inc., for getting the cargo packaged and ready for shipment in such a short period of time.  Special thanks to Paul Bandriwsky for initiating the contacts.

Requests from other oblasts have been received through the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States and its consulates, as well as the two UUARC offices in Ukraine.  The UUARC is conducting a fundraising campaign to cover the $75,000 cost of the initial shipment and future shipments.  The Consulate Generals in Chicago and New York are helping with the solicitation of funds.
