When Andrzej Wochna, the North East London, Waltham Forest and Bexley Wheelchair Service operations manager, put out a call for help for Ukraine, he could not believe the support of his fellow AJM colleagues from all across the UK.
Andrzej knew he wanted to help the Ukrainian people when war broke out. He turned to friends at his Polish social club, The White Eagle Club, in Balham for support. Within a day of putting out their request for support, they were overwhelmed with a mountain of donations.
Colleagues across AJM responded with astonishing generosity and kindness, donating over 10 large boxes of goods that are already making their way to Ukraine.
Andrzej said, “I’m literally shocked by such a positive response. I’m really proud to be a member of the AJM team. Everyone has been extremely kind-hearted in their donations. Personally, I couldn’t be more thankful and thrilled about such a generous act.”
Stephen Peck, AJM’s managing director, said, ““We’re very proud of everyone for coming together in this way to help the people of Ukraine”.
Right now, Ukraine needs mostly basic medical equipment such as wound dressings, gauze, bandages, surgical gloves, tourniquets and surgical aprons.
If you can help, please drop off any donations to our collection centres at the North East London Wheelchair Service at Unit B1 Thamesview Business Centre, Fairview Industrial Park, Barlow Way, Rainham, RM13 8BT or Waltham Forest Wheelchair Service at Unit C5, Leyton Industrial Village, Argall Avenue, London, E10 7QP
