A Helping Hand for Ukraine
Over the past decades, Ukraine and Russia have always had disagreements; however, in February of 2022, Russia raised the conversation with their recent invasion of Ukraine. According to CBS news Russia has launched a “full-scale invasion.” Thousands of lives have been tragically lost due to the attack.
In response to this attack, Global Care Force (GCF), formally known as COVID Care Force, recently partnered with Cork Medical to donate 10 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) pumps to help the struggling people of Ukraine.
GCF is an organization that provides quality medical care in under-resourced communities. GCF began in 2020 as COVID Care Force. However, the company decided to go global to continue its mission of providing skilled and compassionate medical volunteers who will do whatever it takes to make life better for those in need.
The collaborative efforts between GCF and Cork Medical have saved numerous lives. With Cork Medical’s generous donation of its Nisus NPWT system, soldiers and civilians are being treated to this day. Armed with the world’s leading wound care therapy to treat all wounds, individuals benefit from accelerated healing rates, increased blood flow to the affected areas, and a conveniently portable design to maximize mobility.
GCF recently returned from Poland, where they transported antibiotics and medical supplies to physicians in Kyiv, Ukraine. This is a developing story; more information will come in the coming days.
