Justin Fellows, Managing Director at Spirit Medical, said: “We have all been very shocked and saddened to see events in Ukraine unfold in 2022.
“I am so proud of the whole Spirit Medical team, who really wanted to find a way of providing help where needed. Our thoughts and prayers go forward with our donation to the people of Ukraine”.
“We are very conscious there is currently limited capacity to receive and arrange onward deliveries into Ukraine, so we are working with Christians of Ukraine to help ensure these urgent medical supplies reach those on the ground,” added Justin.
