LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The World Health Organization says hospitals are struggling to provide care to the sick and wounded in Ukraine.
One issue is a shortage of life-saving equipment and medication.
Supplies Overseas (SOS), a Louisville-based global health organization, is rounding up some of those much-needed supplies to send to the region.
Virginia Sims retired from nursing after a 41-year long career. Most of that time, she worked at a children’s hospital in the pediatric ICU.
“That’s what I like doing. [To] take care of the really sick kiddos, infants to teenagers,” Sims said.
Sims volunteers at SOS. The organization collects unused, leftover, and under-used medical supplies and distributes them to medically impoverished communities locally and internationally.
