Doctors United for Ukraine (DU4U) 

is a non-profit incorporation of Yale medical professionals with Ukrainian roots.

Our Mission:  Deliver precision aid to foster the health and wellbeing of Ukrainian people in the face of war and its consequences. 

Help rebuild a thriving clinical care and research enterprise in Ukraine, in partnership with its healthcare professionals and academics. 

Dwight Hall at Yale serves as a fiscal sponsor for this urgent campaign.* Your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. Your tax acknowledgment will come from Dwight Hall at Yale. 

Our immediate strategy is to fill the gaps left by current non-profit efforts for medical and mental health needs in Ukraine. 

We do so through Precision Support of Critical Care Providers with medical supplies and skill building and Mental Health Care providers with training and care infrastructure.  

DU4U’s aid is specific.  We know what is needed because we are in direct contact with doctors in Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odesa, Kyiv and Lviv hospitals. 

DU4U can meet the needs quickly because we work with and pay directly to companies/providers in Ukraine and Poland. This approach drastically hastens delivery. 

Over $900,000 of kidney therapy fluids, blood filtration systems, ventilators, defibrillators, heart valves and surgical supplies delivered by DU4U are in physician’s hands and helping the wounded in ICUs and hospitals in Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odesa, Kyiv and Lviv.  

Our other projects include: 

1. Targeted support for trauma survivors through training and supplies for mental health professionals. 

2. Safeguarding women’s health with medical supply and technical aid to Maternity and Gynecology providers. 

We have a database of further needs, including ultrasounds, chest drain tubes, ventilators, ultrasound guided anesthesia treatment devices and suppliers ready to fill them. Programs for mental health women’s health require funding. The estimated costs are over $1M. 

As we transition from acute needs, our focus will shift to rebuilding and expanding capacity of Ukraine’s healthcare system through academic and research partnerships.     

We welcome any amount of contributions to continue our work. Your gift today can save a life tomorrow.
