Medical Response During this War
Ambulances: We have purchased over 30 ambulances from Poland and Germany to provide emergency medical care for Ukrainian civilians and soldiers near the war zones. Because the Russians have destroyed/damaged over 400 Ukrainian hospitals, these ambulances are essentially Mobile Medical Clinics. They are looking after the medical needs of those living close to the war zones. The ambulances also allow doctors to go to smaller villages and bring children born outside the hospital under professional care. One ambulance doctor said, “It is very important that we help not only to save the lives of soldiers defending Ukraine but also the lives of their children.”
Medical and Dental Care
Ukraine’s health care system has the lowest rating in all of Europe. For the majority of its citizens, it is cost-prohibitive; therefore, poor families and the elderly, especially those in rural areas of Ukraine, do not get adequate primary health care.
Medical missions have always been one of the most powerful ways to change lives and share the Gospel. HART’s stationary and mobile medical-dental clinics are a powerful way to change lives and share the Gospel as we work alongside a local Evangelical Church in their community.
A Carpathian Mountain mother with three young children recently visited our mobile clinic. “It’s truly a blessing for us,” she says. “In our villages, we can only dream of quality medical diagnostics and treatment, not to even mention a free one. To see a dentist in our village – this is a luxury,” she admits. Through this ministry, HART is literally saving our kids.”
First Aid Medical Kits for Ukraine’s war effort
One of the most common requests we are getting from our contacts in the medical world is for life-saving First Aid Kits. These kits are used by the military, civilians, and chaplains. We have shipped thousands of these to Ukraine over the past several months.
