Ukrainians know what a blackout is and have learned to synchronize their lives with electricity supply schedules. In order to minimize the impact of hostile attacks on critical infrastructure facilities, the CO "Medical Aid Committee in Zakarpattya", together with international partners, delivered about 400 generators of various capacities to Ukraine, 280 of which were delivered in December and February alone.
Despite the fact that the country’s power system has recently been stabilized, a significant number of frontline communities and de-occupied territories remain quite sensitive to electricity shortages. It is there that the Committee is now directing alternative energy sources to provide the local population with much-needed heat, water, medical services, and basic everyday amenities...
In Mykolaiv region, the generators help to operate water towers that supply water to residents of five starosta districts around Snihurivka. In the regional center, three municipal hospitals, which are constantly under threat of shelling, received the appropriate equipment.
In Kherson region, the generators were delivered to medical institutions, including the City Clinical Hospital named after Athanasius and Olha Tropin. In the neighboring Zaporizhzhia region, alternative energy sources are enabling the functioning of "points of invincibility" and working in shelters.
In Donetsk region, the generators have come in handy at the Oleksandrivka Planned Treatment Hospital (Oleksandrivka urban-type settlement) and Toretsk Hospital.
In Kharkiv region, the generators were delivered to the L.T. Malaya Therapy National Institute (Kharkiv), the Lyubotyn City Council to ensure the uninterrupted operation of the water intake and electric boiler house, the medical facilities in Studenok village, Izyum district, the Izyum Central City Hospital of Our Lady of Pishchanka, and the boiler houses in Izyum.
In Chernihiv region, the generators support the operation of six emergency medical stations, and in Poltava region, a lyceum in Globyno city, where local students and IDP children study.
In Odesa region, the generators from the CO "MACZ" and its partners are even available on the legendary Zmiyinyy Island, where they are used to maintain life support systems. In addition, the generators have recently been delivered to the Filatov Institute of Eye Diseases and Tissue Therapy (Odesa) and Berezivka city, where there was an urgent need to launch water supply from three artesian wells.
This is only the aid that the Medical Aid Committee in Zakarpattya has recently delivered. In general, 400 new generators that we have managed to purchase and deliver to Ukraine ensure the operation of medical and social institutions, rescue and utility services, critical infrastructure facilities, shelters, "points of invincibility", educational institutions in all regions of the country. Unfortunately, the enemy has made such a need urgent for Ukrainians, but fortunately, by working together we are able to quickly resolve issues with access to alternative energy sources. So let’s keep working!
