Leidos recently partnered with Project HOPE, a humanitarian relief organization providing medical services and supplies to the people of Ukraine.
Why you should know: The war has devastated Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure including hospitals, according to the United Nations and World Health Organization, which has verified more than 200 attacks on Ukrainian health care facilities since the conflict began.
Leidos Chairman and CEO Roger Krone sat down with Project HOPE President and CEO Rabih Torbay to discuss the donation and the efforts it will support.
In this interview:
- How the war has triggered health crises in Ukraine and refugee-hosting countries.
- How Project HOPE is responding to these emergencies.
- How others can get involved to support the people of Ukraine.
From the sources:
- “The crisis in Ukraine has spiraled into a widespread humanitarian catastrophe,” according to Project HOPE officials. “Civilians and medical workers have been killed and millions of Ukrainians have fled home seeking safety. Project HOPE is on the ground in Ukraine, Poland, Romania and Moldova actively delivering medicines, medical supplies, mental health support and other urgent assistance.”
- “We’re proud to contribute to Project HOPE to provide medical relief where it’s needed most in Ukraine,” Krone said. “Project HOPE is doing a tremendous service delivering critical medicine, supplies and equipment to Ukraine’s hospitals and clinics. We must do all we can to support humanitarian relief for those suffering from this horrible conflict.”
Leidos is also part of the Space Industry for Ukraine, a joint initiative to provide urgent humanitarian support in the region.
