The Techiia Foundation has donated 10 more cars to the military. These are jeeps, vans, and pickups that perform various tasks on the front lines, including evacuating the wounded from the battlefield.

A defibrillator, an artificial respirator, accessories for drip infusion, and other emergency medical supplies and medications were installed in the upgraded cabin.

All of them survived!" says Oleg Krot, managing partner of the TECHIIA holding and director of the Techia Foundation NGO.
