Town of Stratford to Raise Funds to Support Americares Ukraine Response
Town of Stratford will be raising funds to support Americares response to the escalating humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The announcement was made during a vigil held in solidarity with Ukraine, at Town Hall Council Chambers.
Americares, a health-focused relief and development organization, has an emergency response team on the ground in Poland, assessing health needs and coordinating shipments of medicine and supplies to support families fleeing the violence. At the same time, Americares has a shipment of 3 tons of critical medicine and medical supplies headed to a partner organization working inside Ukraine, for hospitals and responders there. Americares is also prepared to deploy emergency medical teams, as needed, to provide primary care services, emergency treatment for injuries and mental health support to help survivors cope with stress and trauma.
