Back in Texas. 3rd mission to deliver supplies from US to Ukraine (this time with ambulances) is accomplished.
US > France > Poland > Ukraine
2 weeks ago, I flew from US to France, with $18k worth (7 bags) of humanitarian aid to bring to Ukrainian friends. Picked up 3 ambulances in Poland purchased by my Australian friend James Spenceley who organized and raised $165k in funding this last month. Together with James, Jesse McNeilly, and Konrad Gajewski we drove a caravan from Poland to Ukraine (Lviv, Ternopil, Kyiv, Irpen, Bucha, Mykolaiv, Odessa) on our trip to deliver the ambulances and supplies to the front lines. Met with Peace Corps Medical Officer Dr. Valerii Gontarenko and other doctors, government officials, local and international press, and interacted with residents affected by war, to do more needs assessment.
Yesterday, I returned to work in Texas. This ambulance/supplies run is completed.
