Live From Ukraine: Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach, Catholic Health Association and International Catholic Migration Commission
April 5, 2024 11:00 am — 12:00 pm Timezone: America/New_York



Join Erica Smith from Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach, Bruce Compton from the Catholic Health Association and Msgr. Robert Vitillo from the International Catholic Migration Commission live from Ukraine on the last day of their two-week visit to Ukraine, which started on Palm Sunday.

During this webinar, they will discuss efforts in Ukraine over the past two years of the war, focusing on providing psychosocial support and medical donations. They will also share insights from their collaborations with other partners of the Catholic Response for Ukraine (CR4U), a network of Catholic-inspired organizations supporting the Ukrainian people, including those displaced within the country and those seeking refuge elsewhere in Europe or around the world.

The panelists will offer firsthand observations on:

  • Effective mental health support and training programs
  • Training of seminarians preparing for ministry with people who will experience the effects of war for many years in the future
  • Their meetings with health care providers who have received medical donations in both small rural facilities and large national centers, thanks to the concerted efforts of Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach, Catholic Health Association, Bon Secours Health System, Catholic Medical Mission Board, ICMC and the Knights of Columbus Chapters in the USA, Poland, and Ukraine.



ICMC provides assistance and protection to vulnerable people on the move and advocates for sustainable solutions for refugees and migrants.
