Again. At five o’clock in the morning, anti-aircraft alarms sounded, terrifying the people of Kiev. This is something you can’t get used to. A man was killed. There will be more victims later. We will see them in a month’s time, in the cardiac hospital, which will not be able to operate due to the lack of electricity. We will see them in nursing homes for senior citizens, where the bitter cold will kill them with pneumonia.
In Dnipro, a missile fell close to the warehouse from which we deliver aid every day to the most remote, dangerous and yet most needy places.
“We are safe. No one was hurt, although, as always after an attack, there was a lot of stress when we couldn’t get through to relatives and the rest of the team,” says Jan, our team leader in Ukraine.
We have just supplied small hospitals in villages in the Dnipro region with beds, generators and power banks. We are packing aid to be sent to Slovyansk and surrounding villages, where the situation is deteriorating by the hour. Their residents will receive thermo-warmers, generators, thermoses and rocket stoves.
We are providing aid in eastern Ukraine on an ever-increasing scale. We thank you very much for every single zloty that goes into the Warm Package fund. We would also like to thank the Danish organisation Bevar Ukraine and the newspaper Politiken, which has placed its trust in us and continues to supply our warehouses in Ukraine with supplies of the most needed equipment, purchased through a nationwide fundraiser among its readers.
