Calling all medical or pharmaceutical contacts…

January 17, 2011

I am looking for someone who can help a Ukrainian girl with some medicine needed for daily survival. The medicine I am looking for is betaferon. It’s used for treatment of multiple sclerosis. Cost per month for this medicine in Kiev – when it is available; and that’s not very often! – is $1200 per month. Sounds like a lot for the Western world but when you consider that the average Ukrainian monthly salary is $750; that’s nearly impossible to purchase.

So if anyone has any contacts with the Schering pharmaceutical company, who happens to be the largest maker of that med, or any medical contacts who could help with this, please email me. Thanks much!!

    I know in the states you can contact the manufacturer direct for their medical assistance programs. Not sure how you can do it overseas?! I suggest contacting the company direct, write letters and plead your case.

    We are praying and already thanking God that the medicines you need are preparing to arrive in Jesus Christ’s name.

    Hi Jane,

    Have you ever heard of Map International? They are a Christian organization that sends medicine all over the world. Check out this web page- maybe they could help you!
