The volunteers in Ukraine come from all over the world. For example, Norwegian ambulance driver Didrik Gunnestad drives in supplies, and transports patients away from the front lines.
His ambulance was shot at, but no one was hurt.

Lott found that such volunteers operate in stark contrast to inefficient government operations like those he saw at the Poland/Ukraine border.
Government-administered supply depots even make it hard for volunteers to get supplies. When Lott went with Gunnestad to one depot, Gunnestad was rejected because he hadn’t applied for government approval in advance.
The video above reveals many examples of how volunteers work better than governments.
