Ali Dzhemiliev's Fundraising Page for Ukrainian healthcare
My name is Ali Dzhemiliev, and I'm a young general surgeon from Ukraine.
When the full-scale war started in Ukraine, I was finishing my surgical residency in Kyiv. This was the second time that Russia brutally invaded and attacked my home. The first time was in 2014, when I was a 1st year medical student in Crimea and Russia occupied it, and I was forced to move to Kyiv and continue my education there.
The war placed a huge burden on the shoulders of physicians. Being in Ukraine during the first, most difficult, 5 months of the war, it was awe-inspiring to see how the world supported us in every way.
As a result of the war, the volume of surgeries has increased, and I was extremely happy and relieved to receive a pack of surgical instruments from my American colleagues.
Appallingly, WHO has recorded more than 1000 Russian attacks on Ukrainian medical facilities since the full-scale invasion, weakening the already underfunded medical system.
Supporting Ukrainian healthcare in these challenging times is crucial. Your contribution matters!
From December 2022 via the Scholars at Risk program, I was privileged to continue my training as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Surgery and Public Health (Department of Surgery at Brigham and Women's hospital) with the aim of learning global health and implementing this knowledge in my Homeland and rebuilding the Ukrainian health system.
This year I'm honored to run Boston 10K joining my CSPH lab as "Heal Ukraine Team" and fundraise for Ukrainian medicine, particularly trauma and cancer care.
Would be grateful for your donations.
