Canada Ukraine Foundation

The Canada Ukraine Foundation (CUF) learned about Mykola during their third Medical Mission in Ukraine. He was operated on and cared for at the Main Military Hospital in Kyiv by a Canadian team of volunteer doctors and surgeons. CUF realized he needed much more support, and began looking for options for further treatment.

Your contribution is needed

Your contribution will help Mykola and his mother in their journey towards recovery.  Mykola will need to return to Canada every few years to have further treatment and his prosthesis adjusted as he grows. We need to make sure there is enough funding for this.
