Case Western Reserve University’s Office of Resiliency has organized a number of on-campus locations where individuals can donate supplies to help organizations responding to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Cleveland-based nonprofit MedWish International, in partnership with Medworks, is collecting a variety of basic and medical supplies to help organizations responding on the ground to the Ukrainian crisis. CWRU’s Office of Resiliency is coordinating the supply drive on campus, then will distribute to MedWish.
