MOAS team saves some 45,000 Ukrainian soldiers within over two years of full-scale war

The international humanitarian organization MOAS, which has been working in Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, has already saved more than 45,000 lives.

Chris Catrambone, U.S. entrepreneur and founder of MOAS, made this statement during a discussion at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

“Right here in Ukraine, after two and a half years, we are very happy that we’ve saved 45,000 Ukrainian soldiers, and we haven’t lost a life yet. And that goes to our professionalism,” he said.

The organization has 150 teams of Ukrainian doctors working in 50 ambulances equipped with modern equipment. Thus, according to MOAS doctor Inna Dymeter, the intensive care units used by the organization have modern portable ventilators, invasive blood pressure monitoring devices, perfusors, ultrasound scanners, heaters of infusion solutions, and portable hemoglobinometer.

The organization’s teams are on duty at stabilization points to assist military medics and evacuate the wounded from stabilization points to a hospital, where they can receive the necessary surgical procedures and further stabilization.

The organization works along the entire length of the front line – from north to south.

MOAS receives funding from foreign donors, mostly Americans.

According to Chris Catrambone, MOAS is not a typical medical volunteer organization.

“Many people assume that MOAS is just another volunteer organization. It’s not. We are paid professionals; our doctors and paramedics are the best in this country. They have the most experience (in military medicine – Ed.),” he added.
