Artemivsk Mayor Oleksiy Reva sent a letter to the PFVMH Board of Trustees Chairman, Governmental Commissioner for Ethnonational Policy Gennadiy Druzenko, thanking for his assistance and ponderable contribution to healthcare in this Donetsk Oblast city.
In this difficult time for our country, your activities together with the PFVMH embody all the best qualities of a person! Thank you for your human cordiality and sensitivity to the people who are badly in need of assistance, the letter reads.
Commenting on the letter, Gennadiy Druzenko emphasized on the great importance of the fact that both local people and the municipal authorities perceived the PFVMH as not only a volunteer medical unit for backing Ukraine’s Armed Forces medical service but also sincere support for local medical practitioners and assistance to citizens. Eventually, each examination, operation or just humanitarian aid to the local citizens that our hospital provides is one more little stone laid into the firm foundation of a new united Ukraine we are all dreaming of and fighting for, he said.
The Pirogov First Volunteer Mobile Hospital has been working in Artemivsk since Feb. 11, 2015, based on the Central Raion Hospital within the framework of the second and the current third missions, the latter continuing since Mar. 6. Over this period, the medical volunteers have carried out 74 evacuations, treated 86 therapeutic patients, and conducted 18 surgical operations.
Not a single fatal case.
