Yuriel Shtern introduced a mobile medical platform “Kvitna” for Ukrainian women
Yuriel Shtern, an ultra-religious Jew and a citizen of the United States and Israel, a public figure and the founder of the charitable fund “Kvitna”, has amazed Ukrainians even in these challenging times by introducing a new project – a mobile medical platform where visitors can receive free medical check-ups and necessary consultations. It has recently started operating at full capacity.
For seven years, the charitable fund “Kvitna” has been addressing the issue of breast cancer in Ukraine and conducting informational and educational work on disease prevention and timely diagnosis. Currently, the fund has focused its efforts on ensuring that those who need it most have access to medical examinations.
According to the information, the initiative undertaken by Shtern is relevant and necessary for providing medical assistance to people in war-torn regions, settlements with a large number of internally displaced persons, as well as in towns and villages where access to medical examinations is simply unavailable. Appointments at the Mobile Medical Platform are scheduled on specific days and hours, and information about the schedule can be obtained on the website of the charitable fund “Kvitna” and on social media.
The Mobile Medical Platform is a converted building on wheels specifically designed for medical purposes. Its autonomy is ensured by its own power generator to provide comfortable conditions for visitors. The platform is connected to the Starlink network to ensure constant communication. Inside, there are two examination rooms, a restroom, and a refrigerator for storing medications. The platform is equipped with an ultrasound diagnostic device with a set of sensors for conducting various examinations, including ultrasound of the thyroid gland, breast, abdominal organs, pelvic organs, and more. In addition, doctors from the Medical Ventera Group LLC (a partner of the charitable fund “Kvitna”) can perform diagnostics of various diseases as well as gynaecological examinations with necessary tests.
As Shtern points out, the Platform is intended to reach remote regions, small towns and villages where even before the war not everyone had access to necessary examinations and doctors.
