Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization started by late Christian evangelist Billy Graham, is setting up an emergency field hospital in Ukraine to serve those trapped in the war with Russia.
The field hospital is being set up in an underground parking garage in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.
Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, who now leads the organization, said in a statement that the group has already put about 100 medical and logistical workers in place in Ukraine, Poland, Romania and Moldova. This is according to Christian Headlines.
Rev. Franklin Graham additionally said more help was forthcoming to the areas.
Elsewhere, Israel is also setting up a field hospital in the war tone region, on top of temporarily hosting 25,000 Ukrainians, as well as more than 600,000 Russians in the same categories.
According to CBN News, they will receive a temporary visa for three months. If the fighting persists longer than that, the news sources reports that the immigrants will be allowed to work.
The field hospital by Israel will include treatments for children and adults, an intensive care unit, a delivery room and first aid clinic, the Foreign Ministry announced.
“We are acting on our moral duty, we increase the humanitarian aid and we extend our help to the Ukrainian People,” Minister of Health, Nitzan Horovitz was quoted as saying. “The Ministry of Health sent aircrafts with medical equipment and medicines and now we will also establish a field hospital to aid the refugees on the scene. The Ministry of Health and the State of Israel stand clearly on the side of the Ukrainian People. We shall continue to assist, as much as needed, in saving the lives of civilians whose lives were destroyed in a moment.
