Generators of Hope: European Parliament donates generator to Ukraine


On 8 December, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola donated, on behalf of the Parliament, a generator to its ‘Generators of Hope’ campaign, aiming to support Ukrainians during the winter.

The 325 kVA generator donated by the European Parliament is enough to provide electricity for a middle-sized building, such as a school or administrative office.

“Millions of Ukrainians are left without electricity as a result of Russia’s relentless and unjustified attacks on critical civilian infrastructure,” said Roberta Metsola. “With this practical donation and with the help of other donations from cities and towns across Europe, we want to keep essential facilities in Ukraine running this winter, and provide energy to hospitals, schools, water supply facilities, relief centres and shelters”.

The European Parliament and Eurocities, the network of Europe’s more than 200 largest cities, launched the Generators of Hope campaign on 23 November. The campaign calls on cities to donate power generators, transformers and spare parts of electricity networks to help Ukrainians get through the harsh winter ahead.
