“Hospitallers” is a volunteer medical battalion that evacuates the wounded from the battlefield and provides medical care and first aid. Back in 2014, Sofiya and Solomiya Artemchuk volunteered in a Lviv hospital and after meeting a volunteer with the organization, they decided to join. In 2018, the girls underwent training, began going to the East, and became part of the battalion. The girls went through their studies and work together so the battalion became their life.
Apart from war and volunteering, Sofiya works as a project manager and Solomiya as a web designer. But when they’re on the front, they are always together. They say that the fear of losing each other is bigger than the fear of death. “95% of our friends are medical workers or military, and we have very close people who have already died. We have a rule that we will mourn everyone after the war. It’s very hard, tears welling up but you stop yourself — we will get through this, and then we will cry. If we all break down then who will protect us?”Share
