Ukraine: EIB Group announces new donation 


The European Investment Bank (EIB) Group’s philanthropic arm — the EIB Institute — is donating another €1 million to support Ukrainian family-style orphanages and purchase ambulances, fire trucks and generators for Ukraine.

This was announced by the EIB Vice-President Teresa Czerwińska at the international conference in Paris aiming to support Ukraine’s resilience and reconstruction, recently organised jointly by France and Ukraine.

The EIB approved €800,000 to support family-style orphanages coordinated by the Olena Zelenska Foundation and a €200,000 donation to LUkraine asbl, a non-profit organisation representing the Ukrainian community in Luxembourg, to purchase ambulances, fire trucks, generators and other items relating to the humanitarian needs of people in Ukraine.

Earlier, when Russia started its war against Ukraine, the EIB Institute — immediately launched an unprecedented humanitarian aid package of €2.5 million. This donation is being deployed through the Institute’s trusted partner non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
