First Aid Kits
IFAK and Field Medic Backpack Supply Program
IFAKs are trauma kits containing essential life-saving materials, bleeding control and major wound treatments. IFAK components include tourniquets, chest seals, combat gauze and other hemostatic agents. The Ukrainian military requested 400,000 IFAKs at the beginning of the war. White Stork has delivered over 5% of this request.
Railways Supply Program
In March 2022 Alexander Kamyshin, CEO of Ukrzaliznytsia, made a request: “My trains are getting hit. People are injured. Will White Stork provide us medical kits?” Within a month White Stork had supplied 1,200 first aid kits, enough for every railcar in Ukraine. White Stork’s first aid kits have been used to treat injuries at Chaplyne and other attacks on railway operations.
Post Office Supply Program
Igor Smelyanskyy, CEO of Ukrposhta, requested that White Stork kit out the brave postal workers traveling to besieged cities to maintain the integrity of the mail system. In partnership with Canada Ukraine Foundation, White Stork has provided 400 individual first aid kits to Ukrposhta.
Hospital Supply Program
In partnership with medical supply and logistics companies in the United States and Europe, White Stork has provided hospitals across Ukraine with over $4 million in emergency medical supplies. White Stork consolidates all supplies at its 20,000 square foot warehouse in the Chicagoland area. From there White Stork uses both sea and air freight forwarders to deliver to Western Ukraine where our teams coordinate last mile delivery.
White Stork has safely evacuated 37,829 civilians. When White Stork crossed from Poland into Ukraine on February 28, 2022, we found a several miles long line of women and children waiting to safely evacuate into Poland. We started our evacuation program by financing a network of drivers who were entering besieged cities to evacuate civilians. At the height of the program we were operating 11 buses per day and evacuating between 400-600 day. Today, White Stork conducts evacuations on an as requested basis.
White Stork has supplied over 100 generators to Ukraine. Russia began striking Ukraine’s power grid starting in September 2022. The result has been widespread blackouts during a brutally cold winter. White Stork has delivered over one hundred generators across the frontlines in order to keep Ukrainians powered.
