Ukraine: EU boosts operational support to humanitarian organisations

The EU has set up and fully funded two warehouses in Ukraine, in Vinnytsia and Dnipro, as well as contracting trucking services to get humanitarian aid to those in need.

The use of these EU-funded humanitarian services is offered free of charge to aid organisations operating in Ukraine, as part of the new European Humanitarian Response Capacity system, currently implemented by Handicap International. France will also co-fund these operations in Ukraine, the first EU Member State to join the initiative.

EU-supported road transport operations in Ukraine started in April this year. So far, they have supported more than 18 EU humanitarian partners and local humanitarian organisations in delivering more than 750 tonnes of humanitarian aid in 56 consignments.

Humanitarian aid (food and basic necessities, hygiene and medicines) has also managed to reach hard-to-reach areas such as central Kharkiv and Kramatorsk. 

The warehouse in Vinnytsia is also equipped with temperature-controlled equipment to ensure that goods such as medicines are stored properly.
