Ukraine/Romania: Joy about warm clothes, toys and sweets

At the interface between war and peace: Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help brought Christmas presents to orphans and families on the run

Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help (LOG/WoH) e.V. brought a lot of joy to over 1,200 people in Ukraine and Romania in Pre-Christmas time: The aid organization based at Frankfurt Airport organized in Rakiv (Western Ukraine) and in refugee camps in Baia Mare (Carpathians/Romania) major Christmas events and brought warm clothing, toys, sweets and hygiene products to the region by truck. LOG/WoH arranged further a special Christmas party in Rakiv for orphans who lost their parents in the Ukraine war. Both events were organized in collaboration with the “Rotary Club Baia Mare 2005”.

“The many people in front of the distribution counters with our relief supplies made very clear to us the great need in this war-torn region. LOG/WoH has a particularly strong connection to this part of Europe at the interface between war and peace. Since the outbreak of war, our organization has now brought twelve convoys with a total of over 2,500 tons of relief goods on 88 trailers and trucks via this humanitarian bridge to people in Ukraine and to refugees along the border. We will continue our help in 2024 and thank all supporters for their tireless commitment”, said LOG-WoH-President Frank Franke.

Dear friends and supporters of Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help, 

War and natural disasters are demanding greater and greater challenges. Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help e.V. (LOG/WoH) will continue to take on this spontaneously and with all efficiency also in 2024, the 21st year after our aid organization was founded. We help people in need in a variety of ways. All donations that reach us represent a huge commitment to all of us - donations in-kind and financial resources that we use with the greatest care and bring to people in need directly under our own engagement. Always well documented.

A good example is the “Wings on Wheels” logistical bridge, with regular convoys of trucks towards the Romanian-Ukrainian border and into Ukraine. In 2023, LOG/WoH sent a total of almost 90 trucks full of aid to people in and from Ukraine. The vehicles were loaded with children's food, hygiene and pharmaceutical products, warm clothing, mineral water and disinfectants. An urgently needed quantity of around 2000 tons in total. Experts in the forwarding business attest that we are logistically on top with our work - given our small team in Frankfurt's Cargo City South. Despite these high demands for Ukraine, we have not neglected our other commitments that LOG/WoH has almost historically undertaken for needy people in other parts of the world: in northern Iraq, in Greece, in Romania or here in Germany, where the number of those struggling with life is growing enormously.

Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen//Wings of Help as a recognized charitable organization will continue to rely on your help also in the future. Your donation to us is always targeted. We know the special emergencies in the world and we always accompany our aid transports with an own team. You can also claim your donations for tax purposes, because we are officially listed as one of the humanitarian institutions that also bears the seal of the German Donations Council. We would be pleased if we could continue to count you among the friends and supporters of LOG/WoH and if you would provide a budget to support our humanitarian work at the end of this year for our work 2024. We would like to thank you very much for this on behalf of the entire Board of Directors, who, as in previous years, continued to work on a voluntary basis in 2023. If you have any questions we would be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you, including via www.wingsofhelp.org, and we remain with kind regards
