The American astronaut and former captain of the American navy became the 9th ambassador of the global initiative to help the Ukrainians during the war. Volodymyr Zelenskyy at Telegram announced that Kelly had joined United24.
The American philanthropist chose to take responsibility for the field of medical care. The first task of Scott Kelly will be to raise funds for the purchase of modern class C medical machines. The implementation of this project will help to quickly provide medical assistance to soldiers and civilians after the attacks of Russian soldiers. At the moment, there are ambulances in Ukraine, but the terrorist sentiments of the Kremlin at any moment can make it so that the machines will not be enough.
Earlier, 3 famous Ukrainians joined the initiative. United24 also includes Imagine Dragons, the creative director of Balenciaga and singer Barbra Streisand, American film producer Liev Schreiber, and actor Mark Hamill.
