PVA, a global supplier of automated dispensing and coating equipment, has announced a new initiative to assist in the Ukrainian war effort. The company has teamed up with Mission Ukraine and Ukraine Focus to donate equipment and ship life-saving supplies to the front lines to assist soldiers and civilians alike.
PVA is donating an Emergence PRO™ 3D Printer to Mission Ukraine’s main office in Latvia. The printer will aid in creating prosthetics for those that need them the most and help patients return home, or back to the battlefield, with new confidence. Additionally, PVA is working closely with Ukraine Focus to ship donations from various organizations including bulletproof vests, helmets, medical supplies, computers, and items for children. PVA will also donate 44 of its PREVENT™ ventilators to help those in need.
"Through this partnership with Mission Ukraine and Ukraine Focus, PVA is proud to be able to make a tangible difference in the lives of those impacted by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine," said Frank Hart, Managing Director at PVA. "We hope that our contributions will help to alleviate some of the hardships faced by soldiers and civilians alike."
PREVENT™ is an emergency ventilator originally designed to treat patients suffering from COVID-19 respiratory failure. This motorized device automatically compresses a bag-valve mask to provide air to the lungs of a patient, eliminating the human error and fatigue that results from manual resuscitation. While the ventilator was designed for COVID-19 patients, it has been repurposed to assist in emergency situations such as the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
