49-year-old Peter Fouché was working as a combat medic on the front line in east Ukraine.

His organisation, Project Konstantin which was founded in 2022, has confirmed the news following his death last Thursday.

The charity provides soldiers in Ukraine with vehicles, drones, uniforms and food.

Full statement:

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Pete, our beloved director and founder.

There are no words that can do Pete’s life justice. No words or phrases that could ever encapsulate how much he meant to all of us.

Pete’s unwavering dedication, endless compassion, and relentless commitment to Ukraine and her people have left an everlasting impact on the countless lives he touched.

His heroism knew no bounds. He was actively involved in saving more than 200 wounded Ukrainian soldiers, evacuating civilians from the most dangerous frontline cities, as well as bringing humanitarian aid to people in those towns and cities.

Pete’s bravery and selflessness in the face of danger were nothing short of extraordinary, and his actions will forever be etched in our hearts.

Pete was more than a leader; he was a beacon of hope, a true hero, and a friend to all.
His wisdom, compassion, and faith in God inspired us every day.

His death feels like the worst nightmare: the kind of nightmare where you wish you could wake up, but then we wake up and realise that it wasn’t just nightmare.

We will honour Pete’s memory by continuing the work he was so passionate about, carrying forward his legacy of courage and kindness, of fighting for what is right, and of speaking up in the face of injustice.

Rest in peace, Peter. We know that our Heavenly Father has welcomed you into His arms.

Your heroism and contributions will never be forgotten and we will make sure that it was not in vain.”
