Sunnybrook Ukraine Tourniquet Drive

The tourniquet drive is an initiative of staff and friends of Sunnybrook’s Tory Trauma Program to show solidarity and emergency response to health care practitioners at our contact hospitals in Ukraine. Funds are being gathered and pooled for the exclusive purpose of sending tourniquets to Ukraine. Tax receipts will not be issued.

You can join us in a tangible response to help healthcare colleagues in Ukraine. Sunnybrook has a history of partnership with Ukraine: In 2019, Sunnybrook formalized the Sunnybrook Ukraine Surgical Educational Initiative. The initiative focuses on expanding surgical capabilities of hospitals in Ukraine to enhance care for patients. Over the years, Sunnybrook has led physical missions and symposiums in Ukraine with Sunnybrook staff (surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, and more), as well as virtual symposiums throughout the pandemic.

The current situation in Ukraine is distressing and has directly affected colleagues and infrastructure at our contact hospitals. Further, we have been informed of the need for tourniquets across the country.

In response to this urgent need the Tory Trauma Program is collecting funds to mobilize a shipment of tourniquets to Ukraine. For approximately every $30, one tourniquet will be sent to Ukraine.
