Join United Hatzalah in Saving Lives

Dear Fellow Yidden!

Rosh Hashanah 5779 is fast approaching, and as you plan your trip to Uman, the United Hatzalah operation on the ground is already organized and ready to go.

The Uman Clinic will be funded and operated this year by United Hatzalah and will be staffed by a team of 12 multidisciplinary physicians, coordinated with rapid emergency response teams - over 100 volunteer medics on location. The clinic is preparing to provide the highest quality medical care in a manner that speaks your language (in more ways than one). As always, everything is free of charge. This is only made possible thanks to generous donors like you!

Hundreds of thousands of Jews flock throughout the year to Uman, Kiev, Odessa and the kevarim of other tzaddikim in the area. United Hatzalah Ukraine is there to provide everyone with emergency medical coverage.

Many areas in the Ukraine are affected by the dangers of outdated medical care, crime, anti-Semitism, traffic accidents and a maze of foreign bureaucracy. The local volunteers of United Hatzalah know how to help people navigate these dangers.

To this end, a local hotline 063-800-1221 has been established. The calls are forwarded to United Hatzalah Command Center where a specialized dispatcher, familiar with the situation on the ground, coordinates rescue efforts in the Ukraine.

The volunteers of United Hatzalah arrive immediately upon receiving the call, medical equipment at the ready. They provide a caring and professional service for all those in need.

United Hatzalah Command Center in Israel provides support, consultation and confidential record sharing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Skilled logistics specialists ensure that each patient receives the vital medical care they need, from the moment the incident occurs, throughout their treatment in the Ukraine and, if necessary, during the flight to Israel or to their country of residence.

Facts and figures:

  • General Annual Budget:

    Medicine, medical equipment, courses and EMT training throughout the Jewish communities in the Ukraine, medical coverage for group tours

    $ 250,000

  • Uman Rosh Hashanah Budget:

    Staff clinic, senior physicians, medical equipment, medical escort, ambulance services, coordination of medevac flights, on-site medical helicopter readiness

    $ 101,000

Rabbanim from across the frum world applaud the volunteers of United Hatzalah and the leaders of the organization – they have put out a call for everyone to donate at least $18 to support rescue efforts

Dear brother, become a life partner, support our life-saving activities and in the merit of your generosity may you be written into the Book of Life!

Partner with us to ensure that whenever Jews arrive, emergency medical coverage will be available, providing rapid and professional response in any scenario. Remember: “Whoever saves a life, it as if he saved an entire world!!!”

About United Hatzalah Ukraine

United Hatzalah Ukraine was founded by Rabbi Hillel Cohen in light of the incredible increase in the amount of Yidden coming to daven at kivrei tzaddikim, explore their roots and tour the Ukraine.

Together with the increase in visitors, the growth of the local Jewish community meant there was a need to establish a Hatzalah unit as is common in Jewish communities throughout the world. In order to train local medics Hillel reached out to Eli Beer of United Hatzalah Israel, an entirely volunteer-run / chesed-based organization “Where there is none ... Strive to be one!”

Medics

About 100 medics were trained throughout Ukraine and equipped with professional medical and resuscitation equipment. Ambulances

In emergency medical conditions, the volunteers of United Hatzalah Ukraine have a well-equipped ambulance at the ready. The ambulance serves United Hatzalah Ukraine faithfully, enabling volunteers to respond rapidly and save lives. In addition, the ambulance is used for medical transport and facilitating medevac operations, from the scene of the incident itself, through the airport entrance and up to the tarmac.

The Uman Rosh Hashanah Clinic

For tens of thousands of people coming to Uman for Rosh Hashanah, the clinic near the Kloiz in Uman is well known.12 senior doctors from Israel are on-staff providing coverage. A team of paramedics and EMTs, headed by Rabbis Nachi Klein and Avigdor Landsman, stand ready 24 hours a day to treat every case, whether minor or major. Every year thousands of incidents occur, with a number of evacuations to hospitals in Kiev and (in rare instances) international medevac flights. This year, United Hatzalah took upon itself to fund and operate the clinic for the first time as an integral part of the its Medical Division, in order to streamline and expand its services.

Mobile clinics at other times of the year

In addition to its regular activities in Uman, the "United Hatzalah - Ukraine" mobile clinics operate in the field whenever and wherever Jews from all over the world gather to daven at kivrei tzaddikim. The clinics provide first aid and emergency services and are staffed by physicians and other care providers.

On the holiday of Shavuot (both days) the Yahrzeit of the Baal Shem Tov zy”a, the mobile clinic moves to the town of Mezubizh, providing medical services to those who come to pray at the kever of the Tzaddik.

This is also the case on the Yahrzeit of the holy Rabbi Yisroel of Vladnik and the Baal Hatanya zy”a in Haditch, both of which occur during the brutally cold Ukrainian winters. The devoted medics of United Hatzalah Ukraine are on call with the mobile clinic, ready to respond to any emergency. The clinic provides free medical services to all patients. Many Chassidic courts make large group visits to the kevarim of the tzadikkim in the Ukraine, such as Boyan, Belz, Machnovka and Vizhnitz. They have all benefited from the services of the United Hatzalah Ukraine mobile clinic.

International Emergency Hotline

For medical emergencies in the Ukraine call: +380638001221

Medical Consultation

In the Ukraine, United Hatzalah's activity is vital given the extremely poor level of medical service in pre-hospital and in-facility care. United Hatzalah Ukraine has become the preeminent address for Jews in need of emergency medical services and medical advice. From treatment at the scene itself to assistance with medevac and more.
