Coastal Craft Gallery is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with Medical Missions for Children (mmfc.org) to help raise funds and medical supplies for the victims of this brutal assault upon innocent Ukrainian civilians.
MMFC first traveled to Ukraine in 1998, and since then they have carried out 42 charity trips to the cities of L’viv and Chervonohrad. They provided the necessary medical expertise and state of the art technology to care for children and young adults with craniofacial deformities and severe burn injuries. In addition, they established surgical programs at hospitals in both of these cities. MMFC volunteers-surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses-have worked hand in hand with their Ukrainian medical counterparts.
These same dedicated Ukrainian professionals are now devoted to the 24 hour a day task of caring for the victims of this war upon Ukraine. Coastal Craft Gallery and MMFC are committed to providing emergency relief supplies to treat these victims, many of them children who have sustained life-threatening injuries. MMFC is in daily communication with the L’viv and Chervonohrad hospitals. Working with the same well-established channels they have utilized over the past 25 years, MMFC has the capacity to transport the imperative surgical and acute/trauma care supplies to these facilities.
The Coastal Craft Gallery members have been busy creating art to sell specifically to aid Ukraine. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces of art will go to the CCG / MMFC Ukraine Relief Fund. There is a dedicated area for the Relief Fund art and some art dispersed throughout the gallery.
There are 3 ways you can help CCG help Ukraine.
- Purchase a designated piece of art at the Gallery.
- Choose to donate $5 at the time of any purchase at Coastal Craft Gallery. You will be asked at checkout time if you want to donate.
- Donate any amount directly to MMFC’s Ukraine Fund.
