The Emergency Field Hospital (EFH) is a strategic asset for disaster-stricken areas where medical infrastructure is damaged or nonexistent. It is a fully-functioning unit that can provide urgent medical relief within 24 hours of arriving on-site. At maximum capacity, an EFH includes an emergency room, laboratory, inpatient wards, operating rooms, specialized equipment, and a critical care unit, allowing the hospital staff to treat more than 100 patients and perform 15 to 25 surgeries daily.
A missile struck Tetyana’s apartment complex in Kharkiv. She survived, but she knew the next time she might not be so lucky. Civilian casualties were becoming more and more common in her neighborhood.
“It was terrifying to hear that sound,” Tetyana remembered. Windows shattered and part of her apartment building crumbled. “When we heard explosions coming closer, I felt such fear. It was at night, and I really felt covered with fear. Early in the morning, I took whatever I could and took the first possible train.
Tetyana, a native of eastern Ukraine, is one of more than 7,000 patients who have sought treatment from Samaritan’s Purse doctors and nurses since the beginning of the conflict. She fled her community as bombs began hitting closer to home. Our doctors and nurses in the Emergency Field Hospital treated Tetyana for a persistent case of bronchitis that had grown worse because of the exhausting travel from her home. The team also prayed for and encouraged her.
Providing medical care to families hurting from the situation in Ukraine has alleviated many concerns that were adding to their turmoil. It’s opening up opportunities, as well, to address spiritual concerns and emotional burdens now that they can rest without fearing for their lives. The medical care that Tetyana received was the perfect gift of hope.
