Report for July. We are preparing for the difficult heating season of 2022-2023
According to the result of five months of humanitarian work, since the beginning of the military conflict in Ukraine, the international agency «West support» has followed a constant trend of increasing the provision of charitable assistance. The main directions of humanitarian aid, taking into account the approach of the 2022-2023 winter period, are warm things, autonomous power generators and mobile heating elements. Despite the tiredness of foreign donors and volunteers, «West support» continues to receive aid in the form of humanitarian cargo both for civilians and for military essentials. The question of the continuation of the humanitarian program in Ukraine is extremely important, because with the approach of the autumn-winter period of 2022-2023, Ukrainian cities face the question of the heating season. As of today, many infrastructure facilities have been destroyed in the country and this trend is increasing every day. The issue of providing warm things, hygiene products, and creating mobile heating points is extremely important. In July, humanitarian aid was provided in the following areas: • Medical preparations and emergency supplies were received by medical institutions of Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Chernihiv regions and the city of Kyiv; • Foodstuffs, food for long-term storage in canned food, dry rations were transferred in the territory of Kharkiv and Mykolaiv regions with a total weight of more than 45 tons; • More than 21 tons of personal hygiene items and household items, warm items were transferred to humanitarian aid distribution centers; • Personal protective equipment such as 3rd and 4th protection class body armor, tactical first-aid kits, as well as tactical helmets were handed over to military medical facilities and special forces that protect Ukraine.
