The role of women in the war is significant!
Women make up a large part of the Hospitallers team. Their willingness to risk their lives to save others makes them not afraid of difficulties. During times of need, they support and comfort, and in critical situations, they stay calm and help the wounded.
Every year the BBC publishes a list of 100 women highlighting the most powerful and influential women from around the world.
Yana Zinkevich, founder of the Hospitaller team, is one of the BBC 100 Women of 2022.
In the BBC's post about Yana, they say:
“Saving lives on the front line of the war, the Hospitallers is a volunteer paramedic organisation. Led by Yana Zinkevych, they work to evacuate people from the battlefield. Zinkevych became a medical volunteer after leaving school, and founded the battalion in 2014 at the start of the hostilities in Ukraine.
She has personally carried 200 wounded soldiers to safety. Her team continues to provide first aid to injured soldiers and civilians, conducts medical training, and has performed around 6,000 evacuations. The 27-year-old is also one of the youngest members of the Ukrainian parliament and is head of the military medicine subcommittee.”
It is Yana Zinkevich's mission to ensure that paramedics can continue to work and save lives. In the most challenging situations, she supports paramedics and provides them with everything they need.
We must not stop and continue to help Hospitallers. Our support is important to them, and thanks to us, they continue to work and save countless lives. Our strength lies in our unity! #Hospitallers #Paramedics #UkraineParamedics #HospitallersUkraine #HospitallersUK #HelpHospitallers #Ukraine #SupportUkraine #HelpUkraine #StandWithUkraine #HelpUkraineNow
