GRM’s Rapid Response Team entered Ukraine on March 3rd, 2022, conducting assessments of the hospital system across the country. Integrated with both Ministry of Health and the WHO Emergency Medical Team Coordination Cell, GRM pushed critical information back to the humanitarian community for resource allocation.

Over six months, GRM spearheaded multiple programs to boost capacity and provide emergency services including front line surgical teams embedded in Ukrainian hospitals, medevac in both the West and the East, and trauma training for nurses, firefighters, Territorial Defense volunteer medics, border guards, and physicians.

In 2023, GRM will continue its Ukraine programs, working with institutional partners like Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Massachusetts General Hospital to provide continued support in trauma medicine training for Ukrainian clinicians working in the most difficult conditions.

  • Front Line Surgical Teams: 724 surgeries
  • Medevac: 79 patients
  • Trauma Training: 1300 clinicians and volunteer medics
  • Supplies: 1000 Individual First Aid Kits (IFAKs), critical care monitors, ambulance, blood warmers, EZ-IO® manual needle sets, hypothermia blankets, blood transfusion kits, Butterfly iQ ultrasound devices, ipads

We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
