About the Team

About Polish Medical Mission Vasco Emergency Team

The Polish Medical Mission in cooperation with Vasco Electronics established a medical team consisting of doctors, nurses, paramedics, and midwives so that people around the world could receive health care in crisis situations. We are empathetic to human suffering, and our work is also motivated by positive energy and faith that we can have a real impact on the environment.

We constantly train our operational skills and take care of the mission security rules.

How do we work?

Wherever local medical services are unable to respond effectively, we want to help. Primarily in situations of sudden disasters and humanitarian catastrophes.

Together with us, you can help people anywhere in the world, including in refugee camps and during rescue operations. We not only operate in emergency situations, but also train medical staff in developing countries to strengthen their local healthcare system.
