The war in Ukraine is now entering its third month. The United States has sent more than $3 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since February. According to the United Nations, the private sector has committed more than US $1 billion of cash and in-kind donations for the humanitarian response to the war in Ukraine. This includes contributions to support the Ukraine Flash Appeal and Regional Refugee Response Plan as well as direct donations to UN agencies, Red Cross societies, and non-governmental organizations operating in Ukraine and surrounding countries.
Halco USA, a leading supplier and converter of hook and loop reclosable fastening solutions is contributing by donating fastening products for military and civilian emergency medical response. Guy Fussell, General Manager at Halco USA, says:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine and it is incredible to see the resilience of their armed forces and civilians. Halco is pleased to donate products suited for use in medical and emergency response products such as body armor, tourniquets, patient transport and positioning products and first aid. We’re shipping relevant products to North American brokers who are consolidating shipments or directly to Eastern Europe. We encourage companies who are manufacturing products to support Ukraine to contact our team.”
