(Washington, D.C., March 15, 2022)–B’nai B’rith President Seth J. Riklin and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
Since Moscow began its invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, B’nai B’rith has mobilized teams around the world to meet the needs of refugees as well as of those suffering the extreme war-time conditions in Ukraine.
Right now, B’nai B’rith is sponsoring a shipment of vital medical supplies to be shipped from Warsaw, Poland, to Lviv, Ukraine. Among the items to be delivered are spinal anesthesia systems, casts and dressings, antibiotics, sutures and wound drainage systems.
We are also providing 1,000 jars of baby food and cereal, plus warm clothing, personal hygiene items, dry food goods and other essentials to a refugee center in Warsaw.
In addition, we have sent funds to Moldova to assist with temporary housing and other essentials for refugees crossing to safety in Moldova.
As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, we are working with aid teams in Ukraine and at various border crossings to assess and meet immediate and longer-term needs.
Our Ukraine Disaster Relief Fund is open for donations.
