SOLANO COUNTY,  CA (STL.News) Governor Gavin Newsom visited the state’s disaster logistics warehouse in Solano County to help pack emergency relief supplies for Ukraine.  The needed medical aid is being prepared for an upcoming shipment by Direct Relief, a California-based humanitarian aid organization that has been coordinating with the government of Ukraine and on-the-ground partners to provide support during the current crisis.

The supplies packaged today include:

  • A California Medical Station that includes beds, wound and IV kits, a defibrillator, wheelchairs, and other necessary supplies.
  • One hundred oxygen concentrators.
  • Personal protective equipment to supply refugee camps.
