Help for Rare Families Affected by the Ukrainian Crisis

Global Genes is working with partners from around the world to provide support for rare disease families from Ukraine who have been affected or displaced by the ongoing war.

TuTuk Volodymyr, head of the Ukrainian Association of Patients with phenylketonuria (PKU) discusses they have been able to do with the funds received from the Global Genes UKR Rare Relief Grant.

The grant that Global Genes provided in this case helped to provide medical supplies and postal services to send aid for patients with cystic fibrosis currently living in Ukraine.
