Ukrainians Rush to Help and Donate Following Yesterday’s Deadly Missile Attack


Ukrainians have rapidly raised nearly $8 million within a day to support “Ohmatdyt,” Ukraine’s largest children’s hospital. This comes after a Russian missile strike destroyed one building and damaged four others, injuring 20 people, including children, and resulting in the death of one doctor.

In less than three hours, donations totaling $3.6 million were contributed towards the rehabilitation of Ohmatdyt, which was hit by a Russian missile. Various businesses across Ukraine, including gas station chains, private laboratories, hospitals, foundations, delivery services, and taxi companies, have also begun contributing funds.

Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, announced during a government session that the government has allocated $3.7 million from the state budget’s reserve fund for urgent restoration works at Ohmatdyt.

On July 8, 2024, a Russian missile strike targeted “Ohmatdyt” Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, resulting in extensive damage. The hospital, Ukraine’s largest for children, sustained destruction to multiple departments including surgical, intensive care, oncology, and hematology. The attack killed one doctor and injured 20 people, including children.

You can stay informed about the situation in Ukraine, share accurate information to counter disinformation, donate directly to aid Ohmatdyt Children’s Hospital’s recovery efforts, contact representatives to advocate for increased support for Ukraine’s defense, explore volunteer opportunities, and inform others in your network about how they can help.
