A positive story has arisen out of the devastating and horrifying effects and outcomes of the Russian/Ukrainian War.  A small team in Western Australia and Northern Territory, together with two suppliers has achieved a West Australian first for Ukraine.

The acquisition and delivery of much needed medical supplies to Hospitals and Trauma teams has been a priority ever since February 24th 2022, when the Russian Military invaded Ukraine under the pretence described as a "Special Operation," Leading to the ongoing injury, death and displacement of millions of Ukrainian people. 

The Ukrainian Association of WA, Orest Zadvirnyy from the Ukrainian Australian Association of NT, Doctor Olexandra Voloshyn,  geriatrician from Rockingham hospital, WA and specialised medical personnel, medical suppliers and logistic experts have collaborated in a combined effort to identify and deliver life saving medical products urgently needed for the region by initiating a "Special Operation" of their own.


The products have now been received by the medical teams in Ukraine. They are  essential to help save lives. Company director Denise Dagley and Mandurah Pharmacist Aaron Sangalli pledged their support to the team by supplying sizable quantities of the much-needed First aid supplies.

 "We are very greatful and thankful to Denise and Aaron for their support and generosity for these critically needed products and hope to send much more" said Mykola Mowczan president of the Ukrainian Association of WA.

Anyone who would like to assist the team or would like to donate much needed funds to the organisation, can contact them directly at
