At Ukraine’s borders huge numbers of people arrive with only what they can carry. In many places there are long waits to cross and few facilities waiting for them on the other side.
Throughout the conflict in Ukraine, we have partnered with Integra in Slovakia to provide food, shelter, and basic essentials for those fleeing danger. Massive devastation in urban centres have made life unbearable for millions of people. Critical services such as water, heat and electricity have been severely disrupted in certain areas and the need for non-perishable food items is increasing.
We have been able to provide essential items and non-perishable foods to those internally displaced and those most vulnerable in Ukraine. A large container, filled with an average of 26 Metric tons of non-perishable food items and essentials, will be delivered to Ukraine, and distributed to 6,000 recipients. Additionally, our local partner has been providing overnight accommodation to Ukrainian refugees as well as medicine and medical supplies, a cash-transfer programme, and psycho-social counselling.
