As we all watch the horrors that are happening in the Ukraine, we cannot help but see the suffering of families, children, and our medical colleagues there. There have been so many stories of the heroic efforts of the Ukrainian people as they face an unprovoked war. Yesterday, we heard of the loss of a Ukrainian Pediatric Anesthesiologist, Dr. Marina Kalabina, who was killed taking a wounded nephew to the hospital. Thousands of Ukrainian children are also being displaced.
The Society for Pediatric Anesthesia stands with the people of Ukraine and our Ukrainian colleagues as they fight and care for the children there. We have made a $10,000 donation to UNICEF. If you would like to donate on your own as well, the following organizations assist in areas of conflict globally, including in the Ukraine.
