Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce Creates the First Emergency Evacuation Fleet in Ukraine

Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce Under the Leadership of Duvi Honig from Lakewood Creates the First Emergency Evacuation Fleet in Ukraine. Due to the massive number of people requiring urgent evacuation and lacking the means to do so, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce along with its partners in Ukraine have created the very first emergency evacuation fleet transporting people under fire from the front lines of fighting in Ukraine.

As opposed to other evacuation efforts which operate at specific scheduled times, the evacuation fleet, consisting of two coach buses, a sprinter, and two ambulances to help evacuate the sick and elderly and infirm, are manned around the clock by Ukraine Emergency Response Hatzolah volunteers and rapidly respond to people living under fire, The uniqueness of this fleet allows constant deployments to areas of need of evacuation vehicles to those most urgently in need and with no alternative to escape.
