The EU and the UNFPA procured and delivered 880 female hygiene kits to healthcare workers of six hospitals, assigned to provide treatment to patients with COVID-19 in the Volyn region.
The kits were provided under the ‘WE ACT: Women Empowerment Action’ program.
Before this, 11 Luhansk and Cherkasy regional hospitals tackling COVID-19 received same hygiene kits.
“Every day, medical teams who are at the frontline of the COVID-19 respond, save Ukrainian lives, sometimes working two-three shifts in a row, sleeping at the workplace, in hospitals, in personal protective equipment. It is crucial for every person, every woman, to have the ability and means to maintain a high level of personal hygiene, even while working in the difficult circumstances of the pandemic,” said Tetiana Shulha, sector manager and gender focal point at the European Union Delegation to Ukraine.
