Ten members of the Jewish Breslov community in Uman, Ukraine, who fled to Israel after the Russian invasion and the onset of the war six months ago, trained to become EMTs with United Hatzalah in Jerusalem with the hopes of returning to Ukraine and assisting their community.

Taught by United Hatzalah’s instructors Yechiel Mayberg and Uriel Amrani, the aim of the special course was to strengthen emergency medical response in and around the community of Uman and to lower the response time to medical emergencies. The newly graduated EMTs all hope to return to Uman soon and assist in the region.

United Hatzalah’s Vice President of Volunteer Operations Eliezer Hyman, who attended the graduation ceremony on Thursday, told the graduates: “you came to Israel and invested your time and efforts to learn how to give the most professional response to medical emergencies in Uman and throughout Ukraine. Your actions are worthy of the highest praise. You are the latest reinforcement to United Hatzalah’s extensive activities in Ukraine since the beginning of the war.”

Earlier this month, a group of 20 Ukrainian psychologists and social workers concluded in Israel a tailored course on mental first aid in times of emergency in which they learned about Israel’s experience in building community resilience and civilian support in times of crisis, following the months of warfare in their country.

After contending with several wars and multiple waves of terrorism, Israel’s services have developed unique protocols to treat emotional trauma victims.

Israel’s mobilization to transfer extensive humanitarian and medical assistance to Ukraine includes flying children with cancer to Israel for treatment, sending the fully-equipped Kochav Meir field hospital, medicines, ambulances, food, protective gear to aid operatives in the field, and more.
