On August 25, ten members of an EMT training course tailored specifically for residents of the Breslev community in Uman who fled Ukraine following Russia’s invasion celebrated their graduation ceremony.
The study in Jerusalem ended six months after the violence began on February 24.
Yechiel Mayberg and Uriel Amrani of United Hatzalah taught the program.
Its goal is to enhance emergency response teams in and around Uman and reduce the time it takes to handle medical crises.
Given the country’s current situation, the freshly graduated EMTs intend to return to Uman soon and provide their newly gained talents in the region.
“You came to Israel and committed your time and resources to learn how to provide the most professional response to medical emergencies in Uman and throughout Ukraine,” said Eliezer Hyman, vice president of volunteer operations at United Hatzalah, congratulating the graduates for their dedication.
“Your actions deserve the highest appreciation. “You are the most recent addition to United Hatzalah’s vast operations in Ukraine since the beginning of the war.”
According to Aharon Ben Harush, deputy director of the United Hatzalah chapter in Uman, “our actions in Uman and throughout Ukraine begin upon receiving news of the emergency and only cease when the patient is discharged from the hospital.
” Our committed team of volunteers accompanies patients to the hospital to aid them with lane issues, translate medical staff instructions, and assist patients throughout medical treatment.
We are thrilled to see new EMTs join the chapter in these trying times. “
