The EU-financed Cross-border Cooperation Programme Poland-Belarus-Ukraine (CBC PBU) has handed over a consignment of humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
Together with a representative of the Lviv Branch Office of the Programme, CBC PBU delivered over a hundred pairs of military footwear, 120 sleeping bags, a similar amount of thermoactive clothing, gloves, chimney sweeps, fleece, medical supplies such as various types of bandages, dressings, orthopaedic collars, painkillers and foodstuffs worth over PLN 100,000.
This activity is a part of a new dimension of CBC PBU in the face of the war in Ukraine. The Programme has decided to support the beneficiaries of the Programme who are currently working in humanitarian offices where they collect and transfer items to regions affected by warfare.
According to a press release, the Programme is already working on organising the next aid transport.
Also, the Rzeszów Branch Office of the Programme transferred warm hoodies, blankets and tourist towels to the Bieszczadzki Poviat, beneficiary of two PBU projects, to support refugees that already crossed the border with Poland.
