Ukrainian crisis. Humanitarian aid transport for the most vulnerable population segments

A new humanitarian aid transport for the Ukrainian population took off yesterday from the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) in Brindisi. The operation is organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in partnership with Italian civil society, which is on the front line of the response to the humanitarian crisis underway and coordinated by the Civil Protection Department of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. The cargo – to be delivered to the collection center in Suceava, Romania, and to be subsequently distributed to Ukraine – comprises 9 tons of medical kits (generic, surgical, post-traumatic drugs and medicines for the treatment of non-transmissible diseases) and humanitarian supplies (including tents, blankets, and tent heaters) from the Italian Cooperation service, in addition to 7 tons of relief supplies (food, personal hygiene and first aid kits, and medical material) made available by the Fondazione Francesca Rava. The cargo follows in the wake of last week’s donation of goods by the Italian Cooperation service to support the activities of the “CUAMM Medici con l’Africa” (“Doctors with Africa CUAMM”) Civil Society Organization in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, and adds on to the preceding shipments in favor of the Ukrainian population made last March.
