Novant Health doctor from eastern Europe collecting donations to send to Ukraine
Orthopedic supplies, resuscitation equipment, antibiotics and insulin are among the major medical needs.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A Charlotte doctor from eastern Europe is working with a group of healthcare workers and other immigrants to gather donations for Ukraine.
Dr. Margaret Lozovatsky with Novant Health was born and raised in Belarus.
She is hearing directly from friends, family and healthcare workers in Ukraine who say they need medical and military supplies.
She says orthopedic supplies, resuscitation equipment, antibiotics and insulin are among the major medical needs.
There are also other needs like clothing and other supplies, but she suggests donating money rather than shipping those items, so they can be purchased closer to Ukraine and be distributed quickly at the border.
She is passionate about this, because for her it is personal.
“There’s no one in my immediate circle of family and friends that has not been impacted,” Dr. Lozovatsky said. “There are hundreds and hundreds of stories, one more sad than the next. It’s a very challenging situation, especially because so many of the bombings are happening in civilian areas. We really take it day by day and hope to support folks over there the best way that we can.”
