International Medical Corps will use the Ambu Bags to save lives in Ukraine and across Africa, including the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Cameroon, and Somalia.
"We are so grateful to Ambu for its generous donation of Ambu Bags," Milner said.

"Ambu greatly appreciates the vital work of the more than 7,500 International Medical Corps staff around the world working to save lives and relieve suffering," Jensen said. "I can’t think of a better way to commemorate the history of the Ambu Bag than to give back to the doctors, nurses, and first responders who rely on this device to save patients’ lives every day."
