In the year 2022, our founders collaborated with a team in Ukraine to provide urgently needed medical assistance due to the onset of war. They quickly recognized both the high demand for medical transports to evacuate injured patients, especially children, and the ongoing exceptional circumstances on the local healthcare system and its professionals.
In response to these challenges, they established a non-profit organization, Artesans-ResQ. Their shared vision was to establish a high-quality and secure transportation system for the injured in Ukraine, addressing the urgent need for medical evacuations.
The work of the organization commenced in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, aiming to facilitate the transportation of critically injured patients across the border to Poland. From there, patients could be distributed for further medical care.
Subsequently, the team transitioned its efforts to the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro, continuing its emergency and intensive care transport program. In partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, Artesans-ResQ has established a critical care transport course to provide training for Ukrainian emergency medical personnel.
