Medical Mercy Canada

A successful collaboration with Mercy Medical Canada

On June 6, 2022, FOWC received a phone call from Mercy Medical Canada requesting assistance to provide ostomy supplies to ostomates in Karkive, one of the war-torn cities in Eastern Ukraine. Mercy Medical Canada reached out to FOWC for help since they do not usually distribute ostomy supplies.

FOWC has its warehouse, so volunteers were able to spring into action, sorting and packing products to have a 450 kg shipment, which represents 60 boxes of product, ready to ship within 48 hours! Volunteers from Medical Mercy Canada picked up the skids and delivered them to the shipping company to be sent by air.

It is truly heartwarming to know that volunteers from both charities made this happen in such a short time.

If you’ve ever wondered what happens to your donations – this is an example of how FOWC, in collaboration with Medical Mercy Canada, is Giving the Gift of Dignity to ostomates in Ukraine.

Medical Mercy Canada and FOWC are each absorbing 50% of the shipping fees which permits each charity to do more work with their funds.

We thank the volunteers at Mercy Medical Canada, FOWC volunteers, and all volunteers and workers throughout the journey who are helping with Giving the Gift of Dignity to those in need in Ukraine.
