Diaconia-Center for Relief and Development, in coordination with other aid organizations in the Czech Republic, is providing 5 tons of winter clothing and kitchen goods to people affected by the fighting in eastern Ukraine.
The humanitarian convoy to Eastern Ukraine left the Czech Republic at the end of last week. Diaconia is be providing winter clothes, blankets, and cooking utensils to people in the region of Slavyansk.
“Due to the conflict in Ukraine, thousands of innocent people were forced to quickly abandon their homes, and were consequently left with nothing. Most of the fighting in this conflict has taken place in densely populated cities and suburban areas. Infrastructure has been destroyed or severely compromised,” statedEva Lacinova, Diaconia’s project coordinator for Eastern Europe . “In coordination with our German partners, we have been working in eastern Ukraine for months. We’ve been closely monitoring the situation and distributing financial and material aid, and therefore, felt a humanitarian convoy was needed to alleviate the suffering of those affected by the most recent escalation of violence.”
The convoy was organized by the Czech non-profit organization, People In Need.
