Pharmaceutical companies donate medical supplies to Ukraine

Eight Korean pharmaceutical companies will donate medicine, medical supplies and health supplements to Ukraine, which has been devastated by Russia’s invasion, a pharmaceutical association said Monday.
The Korea Pharmaceutical and Bio-Pharma Manufacturers Association said its eight member companies offered to donate medical goods worth 3 billion won ($2.43 million) at the request of Global Life Sharing, a Seoul-based nonprofit group that provides medical support to war- and poverty-stricken areas.
The companies are Kyung Dong Pharmaceutical, Daewoong Pharmaceutical, Dongkook Pharmaceutical, Il Yang Pharmaceutical, Genu Pharma, Firson, Hana Pharm and Hanmi Pharmaceutical.
They promised to swiftly supply medicine, including antibiotics and ointments for burns, which were especially requested by the Ukrainian Embassy in Korea.
The packaging process started over the weekend, and the donated goods will be soon delivered to Ukraine by air, the association said.
