This will be our 6th mission to Ukraine. In the past months we have brought a lot of medical supplies, food and other items which are urgently needed to Ukraine.

No electricity, no water

We have witnessed that every time we have been in Ukraine, the suffering has increased. The war continues, and a few weeks ago the Russian army stepped up its bombardments of civilian infrastructure. As a result, more and more people have no electricity. In some regions, there is no tap water anymore.

In the past weeks, we have talked a lot with the people we work with in Ukraine. They know the people, the current situation and the territory well. For this reason, we always coordinate our work in Ukraine with them. So far, we have focused on medicines, bandages and medical equipment. After the last online meetings with our friends from Help War Victims UA, we decided together that we will expand the type of aid we will transport to Ukraine.

In our flyer (and below) you will find a list of in-kind donations that are needed. Some of the new items on the list are related to the growing number of people who are without electricity and water.

As the demand for relief goods is constantly increasing, we also need to increase our transport capacities. In order to be able to do that, we need another van. This would increase our possibilities considerably. With another van we can transport more aid to Ukraine and in view of the growing need this is absolutely necessary. So we also ask you to donate money so that we can buy a used van and additional medical equipment for people in Ukraine.

We would like to thank you in advance and thank all those who have supported our work so far. Without your support our work would not be possible.
