Thank you for helping us to buy two ambulances for Regional Disaster Response Teams!
Together with our donators and supporters, we did a great thing and bought two ambulances for Regional Disaster Response Teams in Dnipro and Kryvyj Rih!
There are a lot of requests for the transportation of the wounded and seriously ill people in these regions. The ambulances are already there, serving medics and helping save lives!
About the ambulances
We found two used ambulances in good condition. One is Mercedes-Benz Vito, and the other is Volkswagen Crafter. It may look not big but still have six seats. In the car body, there are one lying place and three sittings—the best option for evacuations.
After ambulances arrived in Lviv, we did a basic tech checkup and also made a sticker with the names of our donators, so Regional Disaster Response Teams and their patients know whom they can thank.
Ukrainian House in Zelenaya Gora provided the medical humanitarian for the ambulances. Many thanks to the organizer of the aid Tetiana Pidlypchak!
After that, we delivered ambulances to Dnipro, from where one of them will go to Kryvyj Rih.

About Regional Disaster Response Teams
Regional Disaster Response Teams (RDRT) are Red Cross Rapid Response Teams operating worldwide.
In Ukraine, the Rapid Response Unit of the National Red Cross Society of Ukraine (NRCSU) was established in 1995. Until 2014, the work area focused on training specialists to set up tent camps for refugees.
From December 1, 2013, because of the confrontation between protesters and security forces on Bankova Street, the Kyiv Rapid Response Team began active work in Kyiv. Throughout the Maidan, more than 50 volunteers assisted all parties to the conflict, following the principles of the Red Cross and humanitarian law.
In 2015, centres were established in almost all major cities of Ukraine: Odesa, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhia, Ternopil, Kyiv, as well as Debaltseve, Mariupol and other cities, where volunteers were at the epicentre of tragic events and provided assistance often at risk for their own lives.
Currently, volunteers work throughout Ukraine, except for the non-government-controlled territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and the Crimea. The work of volunteers of Rapid Response Teams is carried out with the support of concerned citizens of Ukraine, with the help of international organizations and government agencies.
