Urgent fundraising - target £55'000!
Fujifilm’s mobile X-ray kit (Xair) for Hospitallers! We have this life-saving equipment on loan, after 6 months period, we must either purchase it for £55,000 or return it back.
Xair is a portable X-ray device that can be used in out-of-hospital settings. It can greatly assist our volunteer paramedics in providing life-saving treatments during the “golden hour” - the time immediately after a traumatic injury when there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical and surgical treatment will prevent death.
Hospitallers training center
Since the beginning of the ruzzian invasion, over 800 volunteers from all walks of life have been trained by our paramedic crews on how to provide emergency medical assistance and how to save human lives. We are proud that hundreds of those who have gone through our training programme are now saving lives amplifying our joint efforts.

What we plan to do:
Hospitallers is a Ukrainian voluntary organization of paramedics. Its members are doctors and people of various professions and ages who volunteered to join the first aid squad and deliver life-saving support to all in need.
The commander of the Hospitallers battalion, Yana Zinkevich, was included in the BBC list of 100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2022.
Donations allow paramedics to receive the necessary equipment for providing emergency care and evacuating the wounded.
For almost 9 years, Hospitallers provide first medical and pre-medical assistance on the very frontlines of Ukraine.
All paramedics receive medical training and first-aid courses at the Hospitallers training center. Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, 800 volunteers have studied at the center. Some have stayed with the Hospitallers crew, while others joined other units as paramedics.
If you want to help the paramedics and support their training center, participate in our fundraiser.
