The Czech government’s humanitarian aid program MEDEVAC provides medical assistance to people in need the world over. In war-torn Ukraine it is literally helping to save lives.

Last year, 16-month-old Yulia was close to death. With burns on 60 percent of her body, she lay in a hospital in Lviv where doctors were unable to help her.
