Warsaw.A day in the life of the Ambulance Foundation from the Heart, whose members help people in the crisis of homelessness - TVN24
The door in the ambulance opened four times while driving.Themselves.We put the heart rate monitor at the airflow, because due to the lack of parking heating it refused to obey.It helped.The patient's saturation was checked.
Jerzy has angina.In such conditions it will not recover.This is how Streetworkerki from Ursynów rated.They called an ambulance from the heart, i.e. the ambulance crew, which helps people in the crisis of homelessness.
It's Tuesday, January 18.We are in a birch forest in Warsaw.Right at Ursynów Kazurce known in Ursynów.
That's all he has
"Tent" in which Jerzy lives is made of old tarpaulins.A few, because one was leaking.The next layers also do not quite protect against rain, and certainly not from frost.The old sleeping bags, which Jerzy covers itself, does not help either.
A wooden booth stands next to the "tent".Meter per meter.Is to act as a vestibule.One of the trees Jerzy rested the bike.A mirror is suspended on the second.A bit further I see an old grill, crumbling pots and a Christmas tree, overturned by the wind during a snowstorm, which the day before passed through the capital.
- How do you feel?- asks Rafał, an ambulance driver, professional medical rescuer.Asks and is already in the middle of the vestibule.Jerzy, who lay down in the tent, has no strength to get up.It's sober.
"Good," he says.And he is surprised that someone is asking about it.
- We arranged a single room in the Żytnia shelter to you.
- ABOUT!There it is a five -star hotel - says Jerzy.
- Please.We drive.
But Jerzy refuses.He is afraid that after returning from the shelter on "his" area, he will not find anything.And that's all he has.
So we move on.On this day, I will spend eight hours with an ambulance from my heart, I will go over a hundred kilometers, and rescuers, i.e. volunteers, will help a dozen people in the crisis of homelessness.
