In March 2022, Vasco and the Polish Medical Mission joined forces to launch the PMM Vasco Emergency Team. Its main purpose is to reach places of natural disaster or humanitarian crisis within 24-48 hours.
This project is brought to life as we, Vasco, have joined our forces with the Polish Medical Mission. The latter is known for its 23-year experience of serving medical assistance around the world to those in need. In Vasco, we share some similarities, as our mission is to help people communicate and break down language barriers.
Even more important, our CEO, Maciej Góralski is an educated paramedic, who has professional experience in this field. He would like to further help people in need of medical assistance, so Vasco started cooperation with the Polish Medical Mission.
This is how Maciej is describing the Team’s origins and goals:
"Vasco will support a developing Team in the field of organization and rescue action planning, as well as equipment/medicines storage & purchase. We will also promote the Team’s action locally and globally, including the planning and realization of fundraising. Last but not least, we intend to finance the Team’s training - both within the framework of professional development and concerning the principles of mission safety, biological and terrorist threats, as well as selected aspects of emergency, tropical and travel medicine".
What is PMM Vasco Emergency Team?
We’re forming the PMM Vasco Emergency Team, which main job is to help victims of natural disasters and humanitarian crises, where local authorities can’t act in time.
The group consists of professionally trained individuals with the access to their own logistics and equipment. Medical staff undergoes trainings, both in medical and nonmedical field, to further develop their skills and competences.
In addition, the Team is being accredited by the World Health Organization.
How does the Team work?
Together with the Polish Medical Mission, we aim to keep open minds, hearts and continuously find new ways of helping people. For this very reason, the PMM Vasco Emergency Team is formed, as we want to take our mission further.
The Team’s training will be financed by us, Vasco, as we want to make sure, that its members are highly competent to face their daily challenges during medical missions. In addition, the Polish Medical Mission will share their long experience with the Team, so it’s best prepared for the missions.
Apart from the mentioned goals, the Team influences the world around us. They share their experience with the local medical authorities in Ukraine, Jordan and Iraq.
Our aim is to form a Team of positive, driven and outgoing people who want to help the others. We truly believe that together we can bring a quick aid where the authorities are unable to act.
