Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) is working alongside the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (AFUO), assisting the International Coordination of Medical Aid for Ukraine. They are marshalling donations of urgent medical consumables in Australia to alleviate the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, following the brutal invasion by the Russian Federation on Thursday, 24 February 2022.
RAWCS equipment repurposing activities, MediShare in Sydney, and Donation In Kind in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide are the distribution centres for the consumables, received from the State Coordinators of AFUO. Teams of Rotarians are volunteering to sort, package, label and inventory the items, and palletise them ready for transportation.
The consumables are delivered to the Qantas bases in Sydney and Melbourne. Qantas fly them daily to London where they are being collected by a group of trucking companies called “UK for Ukraine”, these companies are transporting the consumables across Europe directly to a University in Lviv, Ukraine. The University has been transformed into a “Humanitarian Hub” for distributing the much-needed medical aid supplies.
Tax deductible donations can be made to: RAWCS Project No: 6-2020-21 via
