Engiven is honored to announce the ability of crypto donors to support Ukraine relief efforts through Samaritan’s Purse.
The Samaritan’s Purse team is setting up the Emergency Field Hospital in Ukraine. The plan is to have two operating rooms, with a capacity for 14 major surgeries or 30 minor surgeries per day. There will be nearly 60 total inpatient beds, including four intensive care unit beds and four step-down beds. The emergency room can handle 100 patients per day. Samaritan’s Purse has also sent a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) including doctors, nurses, and logistics and set-up personnel. The field hospital will provide specialized trauma care to people impacted by the conflict.
Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan’s Purse explains, “Ukrainian families are hurting and in desperate need of physical aid and prayer during this difficult time. We are deploying life-saving medical care to aid people who are suffering. We want to meet the needs of these families in their darkest moments while pointing them to the light and hope of Jesus Christ.”
With disaster response specialists already on the ground in Poland, Romania, and Moldova, Samaritan’s Purse plans to send two medical clinics on an additional flight next week. Assessment teams continue to work to identify the most strategic locations for these units. These health clinics will equip Samaritan’s Purse medical staff to meet minor trauma needs and provide general medical care for some 200 patients each day. Given their relationships with churches in the country Samaritan’s Purse is able to see how others can assist in this volatile situation including the donation of crypto.
“The partnership with Engiven enabling people to donate crypto to these relief efforts couldn’t come at a more pivotal time. More avenues to give means more life-saving resources getting to those in need.”
Additionally, Samaritan’s Purse has over 3,200 ministry partners inside Ukraine, including a robust outreach through Operation Christmas Child. As conflict erupted, they were in the process of distributing 600,000 gift-filled shoeboxes this year.
James Lawrence, CEO of Engiven shares, “Everyone is asking how they can help with efforts in the Ukraine and to the surrounding countries as the refugees flee. Engiven is honored to serve as Samaritan’s Purse’s platform to enable people to donate crypto to provide medical relief, hygiene kits, and assistance to refugees.”
