Med Care 4 Ukraine restarts, strengthened and reinforced

The seventh humanitarian aid supply mission for the Med Care 4 Ukraine project was organised by ground crews from Emilia Romagna.

It was the largest mission of Mediterranea Saving Humans since the start of the Med Care 4 Ukraine project, which provides basic medical care and humanitarian aid to war refugees accommodated in the city of Lviv.

Our activists also met the managers of Caritas SPES in Lviv, our new partner, and delivered medicines to the Med-Psy psychologist association, which supports and helps war refugees. An ambulance was also delivered to the civil hospital in Dyadkovichi, thanks to donations from the local community, the Zhytets association and private Italian donors. This mission, carried out in March, gave new life to the intervention of Mediterranea Saving Humans in Ukraine.

A new phase of the Med Care 4 Ukraine project, with medical care for more people and more humanitarian aid for those suffering the horrors of war every day. The mission also delivered three power generators to the Community of St. Egidio and a power station to the NGO Insight. Thus continuing our efforts to address the energy crisis suffered by millions of Ukrainians after the bombing of power stations by the Russians and the terrible humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, a dramatic consequence of the armed conflict, are dozens of power generators that we have delivered to the Ukrainian population through our partners from October 2022 to date.

Meanwhile, at the end of March, Mediterranea Saving Humans activists also took part in the 'Stop The War Now' caravan made up of dozens of Italian lay and Catholic associations that went on a peace mission to Ukraine. The caravan reached the war-affected cities of Odessa and Mykolaiv. Especially in Mykolaiv the population is in dire straits, without water and electricity. Few people are left in the city, only women, children and the elderly, while on the streets, which bear clear signs of Russian bombardment, no young men are to be seen. The caravan distributed humanitarian aid to the civilian population, food and hygiene products that the citizens of Mykolaiv needed tremendously.

There were social moments with the inhabitants of the city, including an impromptu concert. A small moment to bring a smile to a community that has been living in fear of war and bombs for over a year. The caravan was in Ukraine until 3 April, before returning to Italy, a very valuable experience that gave us, as Mediterranea Saving Humans, the chance to observe on the ground a part of Ukraine to which we had not yet brought our intervention.

For the month of April, the Berlin ground crew will organise the eighth humanitarian aid delivery mission within the Med Care 4 Ukraine project.
