Medical evacuation team

Due to injuries, disabilities, or diseases, many people have lower mobility and need special transportation. Many wounded soldiers and civilians need evacuation on ambulances from the most dangerous regions.

Together with volunteers-paramedics from different countries and in partnership with Ukrainian and foreign NGOs, we organize ambulance transportation.

Always looking for more opportunities for medical evacuations. The whole crew are volunteers, but still we need money for fuel, medical supplies etc. Donate to help us evacuate more people!

About evacuations

We've already been evacuating people for several weeks as ambulance drivers. Together with volunteers-paramedics from Norway and Estonia, in partnership with Norwegian organizations "Ukraine we are here" and "Восток SOS", we've evacuated dozens of people from Kramatorsk, Petropavlovsk, Pokrovsk, Dnipro, Odesa and other cities.

The demand for such evacuation is very high, as many soldiers and civilians get injured and need transportation to safe places for medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Some of evacuation cases

We can't tell stories of every evacuated person because of the privacy, security of our soldiers and other reasons. But here are stories of some people we helped.

Mission to Kupyansk

31.11.2022

In recent days, the ambulance has been working around the liberated territories near Kupyansk: Kovsharivka, Novosinovo, Kupyansk Vuslozyi. We delivered much-needed food, medicine, candles and hygiene products. Also, we worked with the evacuation list.

During the work, there were 3 cases when the team found dead bodies at the addresses or neighbours said they "buried him/her yesterday". There is no heating, electricity, gas or water. The situation is extremely difficult. That is why people are weakened. For low mobility or lying people, sometimes it's a critical line.

It is very difficult to work there because there is no communication, so people leave applications through notes or by word of mouth to someone who is going from that territory. There were several evacuations of bedridden patients.

Family from Zaporizhzhia

24.11.2022

We evacuated a family with a paralyzed father to Europe for rehabilitation. They are from Zaporizhzhia. There are now rockets falling every night. Rockets repeatedly fell 100 meters from the family house.

We took a father, a mother, a 10-year-old daughter, a dog and a sphynx cat, many things and an automated chair (a very big one). We drove to Lviv in one day. All the way, the family watched the landscapes of Ukraine through a tablet and our camera. The family was very good, cheerful, brave and ready for anything. It is a joy to help such people. Fight for Rights foundation helped organize the evacuation.

A paralyzed woman from Novosinovo

22.11.2022


We went in the direction of Kovsharivka / Noosinovo — Kupyansk-Vuzlovy. There is no connection in this area. We worked with the evacuation coordinator for the Kharkiv region. They collect applications from people based on lists that volunteers make when they go there and on requests from relatives. Relatives have no connection and do not know even if their grandparents are still alive. They can only tell that their relatives lived at a specific address.

Very loud explosions are heard there. Almost every house is without windows. Everywhere there is destructions. There is no electricity, water, or gas. People set up "kitchens" for themselves on the street. There is a supply of chopped firewood in each entrance. But people still live there, even children. We brought humanitarian aid and food.

We asked locals about people from the evacuation list. From Novosinovo (beyond Kupyansk), we evacuated a paralyzed woman to Kharkiv, where her sister lives. The woman said she put a mirror in her window every evening and looked at the war. Explosions, flashes, volleys on the entire horizon and all the windows... She couldn't believe that it was all real.

Mission to Volchansk

20.11.2022

We helped evacuate a senior centre. We agreed that there would be a lying patient and a nurse. Therefore, our volunteer driver went alone. But on the spot, the director of the centre said there were no nurses because almost no one left there.

The patients were stable. They had to be evacuated as soon as possible because loud explosions were heard nearby. The director said to take one lying patient and four sitting ones. They did not walk, they could only sit, and two could slowly move around with a walker. We drove with them for almost seven hours on bombed-out roads.

It was a risky evacuation, but there was still a group of Red Cross paramedics not far away, so plan B was to contact them and ask for help. Fortunately, everything went well. Women said that the road was okay and shaking was not a problem—imagine that we are on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea :)

A woman with a heart attack from the frontline

18.11.2022

This time we were a real frontline ambulance. We received a call that a woman had a heart attack. When we arrived, it was already 5:30 p.m., and it was getting dark. No one goes to that village anymore because it is extremely risky—just a few kilometres to the positions of the russians.

The woman already could not breath. She had terrible pains in her heart. A cardiac monitor confirmed a heart attack. We barely had time to get her to the first frontline stabilization post of the military, where an anesthesiologist inserted a catheter into the central vein and performed critical therapy for such cases. This stabilization post is powered by a generator, so they do not accept serious patients. After stabilization, we took the woman to Chuguyev.

If she had not been taken then by us, no one would have come, and the chances for her to survive would be extremely low.

House calls in Kupyansk Vuzlovyi

16.11.2022

Together with the field hospital, we also went on house calls to those who could not move independently. Our medic volunteers, Simon and Jack, make bandages and distribute medicine, bandages and special bandages for bedsores. Sometimes people had terrible wounds that were not treated in any way for months under occupation.

We brought insulin at the people's request. We made a DIY refrigerator from foil and frozen oil to cool it while transporting.

We thank "Fight for the right" foundation for providing the ambulance to us and the opportunity to help people in times of war.

What we see during evacuations

Please look at what volunteer paramedics and drivers see during their missions.

This is behind photos of smiling people in ambulances. They're smiling, not because they're happy. It's because volunteers came there for them.
