Ukrainian human rights lawyer Oleksandra Matviichuk, the head of the Center for Civil Liberties and a Nobel Peace Prize 2022 laureate, has called for donating to a campaign to raise funds to buy ten armored ambulances for the Pirogov First Volunteer Mobile Hospital.
In a tweet, Matviichuk says the frontline medics badly need armored evacuation vehicles. She also added a video featuring a PFVMH foreign volunteer, Jennifer, who shows a bullet-pierced ambulance near a half-destroyed hospital in Lyman, Donetsk Oblast, a few miles from the frontline.
The frontline medics much require armored evacuation vehicles. Only during the previous month, the Pyrohov volunteering mobile hospital handled more than 2200 patients. The absolute majority of them were severely wounded. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/FU7x8lWBYv

The Nobel laureate stresses that, in January alone, PFVMH handled more than 2,200 patients, an absolute majority of whom were severely wounded.
“We continue documenting the facts of Russians’ deliberate attacks against hospitals and ambulance vehicles. I call on you to support the fundraising campaign for 10 armored ambulance vehicles. It will save the lives of thousands of soldiers, civilians and their rescuers,” Matviichuk wrote.
