Ukraine's War Diaries

Watch BBC documentary featuring the story of our Iryna, a paramedic - volunteer who has been saving lives as a part of the Hospitallers medical group.


On October 24, our Hospitaller Dmytro Gogol, called “Papay” died while saving lives.
Champion of Ukraine in armlifting, strength training coach, sports rehabilitator... sport was everything to him.
He was calm, modest and just a nice person.
This is a terrible loss for all of us.

Farewell to “Papay” will be held in Vinnytsia
October 31 at 11:00 in the Holy Transfiguration Cathedral

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.


Help to save Ukrainian lives

We fundraise and deliver medical aid to support Hospitallers, a Ukrainian voluntary organization of paramedics who are saving lives at the front lines right now.

Meet Hospitallers

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.

Hospitallers team paramedics in Ukraine

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.
