Chicago’s Welmed Partners with SEKO Logistics, Project C.U.R.E. to Donate Surgical Gowns
Welmed, one of the country’s top privately-owned medical supply companies, is stepping up for the people of Ukraine. The World Health Organization has shared medical supplies in Ukraine are dangerously low, expressing how crucial it is for health systems and facilities to remain “protected, functional, safe and accessible to all who need essential medical services.”
This week Welmed will donate over 135,000 high-quality sterile surgical gowns to the Ukrainian government and medical facilities. The donation represents $675,000 in AAMI 3 surgical gowns. These types of disposable surgical gowns offer superior protection to doctors, nurses and other healthcare personnel treating patients in a wide variety of settings.
“The war in Ukraine has reached the level of a full-fledged humanitarian crisis and we all have a responsibility to do what we can to help,” says David Pearlman, Vice President of Logistics & Inventory Management at Welmed.
The shipments of Welmed’s donated medical supplies, which are being handled by SEKO Logistics began moving out this week and will be making their way to Ukraine via air and ocean shipments. Brian Bourke, Chief Growth Officer at SEKO Logistics works closely with Project C.U.R.E., the world’s largest distributor of donated medical equipment and supplies to source-limited communities across the globe. Both SEKO Logistics and Project C.U.R.E. will ensure the donated supplies make it to areas in need.
