“I welcome this latest donation of essential medical equipment from the Philips Foundation. Medical supplies are an important part of the support we need to help save lives in Ukraine,” said Maksym Kononenko, the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
“Philips and the Philips Foundation are working closely with the Ukrainian Ministry of Health to provide much-needed medical devices to the country’s hospitals, mobile medical brigades, and local institutions such as maternity clinics,” said Jan-Willem Scheijgrond, Global Head of Government and Public Affairs, Philips. “The mobile hospital, patient monitors, and mobile X-ray and ultrasound devices that Philips and the Philips Foundation have already delivered to Ukraine are helping to save lives. In addition, we’ve provided consumer products, including products for mothers and their babies, to Ukrainian hospitals, maternity homes, and charitable organizations.”
Philips and the Philips Foundation have also been working with local humanitarian organizations and government agencies to provide support to Ukrainian refugees in Poland, Romania, and the Czech Republic. This includes the provision of patient monitors and handheld diagnostic ultrasound devices to assist in acute and emergency care, as well as products for child care. At Romania’s border with Ukraine, the Philips Foundation and the Italian Red Cross have stationed a mobile hospital ready for deployment in case of emergency.
