CCCF Supports Cardiovascular Research in Ukraine

Last year the CCCF have instituted a granting process whereby we asked the hospitals that we have supported in the past to submit project proposals that would positively affect the people and the community that they serve.

Medical Trip to Ukraine

In May 2010 five members of the Medical Advisory Committee had the privilege of traveling to Ukraine. Their purpose was to verify the hospitals’ use of supplies and medical equipment provided to them from Canada and to assess their further needs for medical equipment and education. In addition, due to a generous bequest by Ivan Maksym, CCCF was able to purchase ambulances for three key hospitals that we support, so we had the opportunity to “formally” present the ambulances. The CCCF-donated ambulances were named “Maksym” in recognition of this bequest. Our route took…continue reading →
