How We Have Helped
AMBULANCES TO UKRAINE 2023
AMBULANCE TO UKRAINE PROJECT 2023
Continuing our efforts to support people in the war-torn country of Ukraine, we teamed up with several organisations to purpose-build frontline ambulances.
Between April and May of 2023, we converted two ford transit vans into emergency ambulances. We also donated a ready-made 4×4 ambulance. These vehicles contained all the essential equipment needed to manage a range of medical and traumatic injuries and transport sick and injured people to definitive care.
During these projects, we teamed up with Sunflower Scotland and Pickups for Peace who supplied the vehicles for us to convert. All three emergency vehicles left for Ukraine towards the end of May 2023 and were bound for the frontline of the war.

AMBULANCES TO UKRAINE PROJECT 2022
The devastating impact of the 2022 conflict in Ukraine affected men, women and children around the globe. Following the invasion in February 2022. PHCAW between February 2022 and June 2022 raised over £5,000 and bought three ambulances and one rapid response car to send to Ukraine.
On the 3rd of June 2022 those high-quality, fit-for-purpose, ambulances made their way through Europe into the Czech Republic finally arriving in Ukraine on the 7th of June 2022. The vehicles were driven by UK-Registered paramedics who gave up their own time to help. All four now work across Ukraine on various missions helping with the humanitarian relief effort.
This would not have been possible without the support of our donors, volunteer paramedic drivers, individual supporters and the companies who supported us.
