The Crisis Rescue Foundation (CRF) was established in spring 2020 by Dr Sharon Raymond, an experienced GP, and finalist of the 2020 Daily Express/Amplifon Coronavirus Hero of the Year award. She was shortlisted in the General Practice Awards GP of the Year category, as well as winner of Inspirational Woman 2020 and was one of the Women of the Year 2021.

At times of crisis impacting on health and wellbeing both in the UK and beyond, Dr Raymond, Director of the Crisis Rescue Foundation, has devised and set up novel health-related services and projects to bridge the gaps in healthcare and wellbeing in the UK and globally. Her projects have included the Covid Cab Service, the Pulse Oximeter Delivery Service and the Vaxi Taxi/Health and Wellbeing Pop Ups Project in the UK, the Help India Now Think Tank Project, and the Uganda Clinical Support Project.

In February 2022, with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, came the widespread destruction of entire regions, particularly in the south and east, and the frequent bombardment of civilian population centres throughout the country. These attacks led to disruption in the running of 48 higher educational institutions, including the medical schools.
