Vehicles are essential when it comes to delivering patient care. In conflict zones and austere environments, that need is even more desperate. Often times someone injured or sick, located away from a hospital or medical facility, is simply thrown into the nearest operating vehicle and driven at top speed. Occasionally this means being able to navigate the terrain and arrive at point of care with enough time to salvage the patient.
With YOUR support we can change that reality. With your generosity not only can we deliver care directly in the field and en-route to a medical facility, but we can also cover large areas that currently go unsupported.
All vehicles must pass thorough inspection before being accepted.
Your donated vehicles are also eligible for an IRS tax-deduction.
If you have a vehicle that you would like to donate, get in touch with us directly on our contact page.
Pickup Truck or SUV -
Off-road capable vehicles such as pickup trucks or SUV's allow our medical teams to navigate terrain that other vehicles are not able to. This is especially needed in austere environments. Such vehicles also allow us to transport supplies and medical personnel to the patient in the field as well as to transport the patient back to a medical facility while providing care en route.
Mobile Medical Clinic Vehicle-
A mobile medical clinic would allow us to reach out to the populations that are not located anywhere near an established medical facility or clinic. In Northern Iraq/Kurdistan alone, hundreds of thousands of individuals lack access to any form of medical care. With a mobile medical clinic vehicle we can bring our medical experts out into the field and treat the communities where they are. "If they can't come to us, then we will go to them."
Air assets such as helicopters are the ultimate solution in terms of patient transport in austere environments. Often times in war zones roads are damaged beyond use, bridges are destroyed, and patients are left completely cut off from any sort of rescue or support. Helicopters used for EMS transport allow for critical patients to receive care in a matter of minutes instead of hours, days, or not at all.
