Medical supplies are sent to Ukraine by South Australia
Five pallets of medical supplies will be donated by the South Australian government to Ukraine in order to support hospitals and healthcare workers in providing emergency care to wounded civilians.
In addition to the items being donated, such as laryngeal masks, first aid equipment, including wound dressings, and pulse oximeters, which measure blood oxygen levels, are also arriving from Australia this week.
In a statement on Saturday, Premier Peter Malinauskas said thousands of civilians have been killed as a result of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, requiring emergency care from doctors and nurses.
“From our safe and peaceful part of the world, we look to Ukraine with horror at what is unfolding. Donating these items is one way South Australians can do their bit to help the Ukrainian people,” he said.
