CharityRx Works to Raise Humanitarian Aid for Ukraine

With every day that passes and the Ukraine War continues, the need for assistance grows. 

“On average, every day over the last 20 days in Ukraine, more than 70,000 children have become refugees,” James Elder, spokesman for the UN children’s agency UNICEF, told reporters in Geneva.

That amounts to around 55 every minute, “so almost one per second,” he said, stressing that “this crisis in terms of speed and scale is unprecedented since World War II.”

Elder warned that “like all children driven from their homes by war and conflicts, Ukrainian children arriving in those border countries are at significant risk of family separation, of violence, of sexual exploitation and trafficking.”*  

Throughout March and April 2022, CharityRx will partner with Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit that works tirelessly to fight human trafficking, an increasingly common crime against humanity, across the globe. It is a dark macrocosm that extends beyond sexual and forced labor crimes, and humanitarian crises around the world leave far too many people defenseless and exposed to predators. The Ukrainian refugee crisis created by the Russian invasion is the most recent opening for these crimes to be perpetuated.

Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) works with authorities in enforcement and rescue efforts in 28 countries and 48 states in the U.S. As human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery, their name was inspired by the Underground Railroad; the network of people who helped escaped enslaved people by creating secret tunnels and safe houses in the U.S. from the late 18th century until the Civil War.  Many O.U.R. members have either military or intelligence backgrounds.

“…this crisis in terms of speed and scale is unprecedented since World War II.”

CharityRx is a different type of prescription discount card. Like many others, it helps customers save up to 80% on needed prescriptions at major pharmacies nationwide. Unlike others, it covers a more extensive list of prescriptions including over-the-counter, compounded, and pet medications, as well as some vaccines at various locations. In addition to these benefits, each prescription filed ensures a donation to a charity. CharityRx chooses a company-wide charity every one to two months that will receive a donation. CharityRx reps are also able to select regional charities for their donations. O.U.R. is the charity of the month for March and April 2022. Every prescription filled using the CharityRx card during these two months will support O.U.R. in their efforts to fight human trafficking in Ukraine. 

We ask that every person and pharmacy tech use the CharityRx discount card as often as possible to help O.U.R. make a difference in Ukraine.
