How Ukraine’s medical workers save lives in war

While Russian atrocity and violence are aimed to deprive Ukrainians of humanism, there is the exact opposite effect since everyone is fighting evil on their front. As the Ukrainian army is doing impossible things in the military sphere, our doctors, paramedics, and medical volunteers give their all to save both civilian and military lives. 

After the first shock of living and operating under the bombings and spellings, they quickly adapted to working in wartime. Now, they heal both bodies and souls, working with people who are shocked and terrified, trying to ease their pain and give them sympathy. 

Working in extreme conditions, with military and civilians, in cities close to the frontline, and in the cities that gave shelter to thousands of internally displaced people, Ukrainian medics overcome fear and darkness every day, making their contribution to Ukraine’s victory.
