We celebrated World Humanitarian Day by loading another truck with humanitarian aid for the embattled areas of Ukraine. Basic food and hygiene products will arrive in Kharkiv, Dnipro and Lubna. This was a day like any other for us. And like every day for many months now, it was very demanding and intense.
We had to learn many things from scratch and very quickly. We are still trying to be where we are needed right now. We don’t like to be late and thanks to you we don’t have to. We are providing aid thanks to you and it is only thanks to you that we are always on time!
We have just delivered an artificial kidney to the children’s hospital in Odessa. It will serve children whose condition did not allow them to be evacuated. Kramatorsk will get a new X-ray machine, and we are restocking the reception points in Dnipro before the next wave of refugees from the front line.
New equipment is also on its way to our hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo, through which the front line of fighting has also been moving for several weeks. We are preparing to respond to the anticipated wave of famine in Burkina Faso and Lebanon.
We end the day with a great deal of gratitude for how much has been accomplished with your help. At the same time, we are aware of how many challenges still lie ahead. Your high-fives every week are the best fuel for us to reach out with help to those who need it most now.
Give us a high-five on World Humanitarian Day!
