UNITED24 Ambassadors Have Met with the President of Ukraine, Announcing a Joint Fundraiser for Generators
For the first time in six months of the UNITED24 fundraising platform, 6 of its ambassadors simultaneously announced a joint charity campaign. Andriy Shevchenko, Oleksandr Usyk, Scott Kelly, Elina Svitolina, Liev Schreiber, and Timothy Snyder have teamed up to raise funds for generators that will be used to power Ukrainian hospitals.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the ambassadors:
“Today, it is very important for the world to stay united in support of Ukraine, to help it get through these difficult times. The terrible war against our country continues. With the winter coming closer, we are facing new challenges in connection with russia’s terrorist attacks on infrastructure, primarily in the energy sector,” emphasized the President. “But I am one hundred percent sure that we will win.”
The UNITED24 ambassadors are raising funds for 1000 generators to power Ukrainian hospitals. Due to constant attacks on energy infrastructure, Ukrainian doctors have to save lives and perform complex surgeries by flashlight.
The legendary astronaut, Scott Kelly, heard this firsthand, as he visited the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital. He talked with young patients and their doctors.
