Last month russia delivered its most severe blow to Ukraine’s power grid, leaving 10 million people without electricity. Using missiles and Iranian drones, the terrorist state has caused damage to almost 50% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. This led to emergency power outages in every region, leaving homes, businesses, hospitals, and other public infrastructure without lighting, heat, internet connection, or running water.
The UNITED24 ambassadors are raising funds for 1000 generators to power Ukrainian hospitals. Due to constant attacks on energy infrastructure, Ukrainian doctors have to save lives and perform complex surgeries by flashlight. The cost of generators ranges between $2,000 to $35,000, depending on their capacity and purpose. There are generators that can power surgeries and entire departments, and other, less powerful ones, that can support the operation of separate pieces of medical equipment.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the ambassadors:
"Today, it is very important for the world to stay united in support of Ukraine, to help it get through these difficult times. The terrible war against our country continues. With the winter coming closer, we are facing new challenges in connection with russia's terrorist attacks on infrastructure, primarily in the energy sector," emphasized the President. "But I am one hundred percent sure that we will win."
