Ukraine Evacuations Continue
Fight For Right continues to evacuate people with disabilities from Ukraine. Support from GADRA and Nippon Foundation has allowed Fight For Right to purchase an accessible vehicle and enabled them to continue this invaluable work.

Over 1,000 pieces of medical equipment arrived safely in Ukraine
Fight For Right has received a generous donation of over one thousand pieces of medical equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, commodes, and consumable medical supplies such as wound care supplies, incontinence supplies, and feeding tube supplies for Ukrainians with disabilities impacted by the war.
The 41 pallets of supplies donated by the Maryland Department of Aging Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Re-Use program were transported by a safe and trusted transportation partner, Alliance Express Cargo (ACE), whose help made it possible to deliver this large shipment into such a high-risk area. FFR is now working to distribute the supplies to disabled people in Ukraine who need to replace their equipment, and to newly disabled people who need these supplies for the first time.
GADRA is incredibly grateful for the support - thank you to everyone who made this possible, including: Maryland Department of Aging Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Re-Use program, Alliance Express Cargo (ACE), Choose Love Foundation, and of course, our partners at Fight For Right.
