American volunteer Jeannie Slater Martin from Texas raised $1 million for the needs of the military hospital in Dnipropetrovsk, said Channel 5.
Martin started her fundraising effort in the United States to purchase necessary medical equipment after having visited the hospital in August last year.
“We have a saying: ‘Freedom is not free.’ We paid a high price for our freedom, you pay for yours” – said Martin.
Medical consumables, ultrasound machines and X-ray equipment for operating theaters worth $500 thousand have already been purchased and delivered to Dnipropetrovsk. The second batch of aid is being prepared to shipment to Ukraine.
Additionally, readers of the Polish publication Gazeta Wyborcza collected nearly $200 thousand for Donbas refugees.
