Northwell sets up a Ukraine relief fund to provide vital medical assistance


Northwell Health has established a Ukraine Relief Fund to help address the devastation wrought by Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

The healthcare giant is accepting donations through its Center for Global Health (CGH), which was established in 2019 and has since assisted in healthcare emergencies across the globe.

Donors have several ways to give to the relief fund:

Donations will go directly to Northwell’s international relief partner Doctors Without Borders, and possibly other relief groups, officials said. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, Doctors Without Borders administers aid to people affected by wars, famine, pandemics, disasters and other calamities.

Doctors Without Borders is already positioned near Ukraine providing medical kits to refugees seeking asylum.

Northwell established its Center for Global Health to position the organization as a global leader in healthcare and education. The initiative has provided medical support in communities across the world, in such countries as Guyana, Ecuador, India, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda.
