Aid from Germany for Ukraine continues. Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help e.V. (LOG/WoH), based at Frankfurt Airport, put together four more heavy trucks with aid supplies this week, which have now reached the Romanian-Ukrainian border. Since the beginning of the war, LOG/WoH has organized convoys consisting of 60 trucks with 1,200 tons of relief supplies. The trucks mainly bring hygiene products, baby food, disinfectants, diapers and mineral water to the needy in Romania and Ukraine. The current convoy alone had loaded 230,000 diapers. The relief supplies are destined for camps along the border, but also for people in need in Ukrainian cities. Reliable on-site distribution is carried out by LOG/WoH partner organizations. The UN Refugee Commission (UNHCR) currently counts more than eight million internally displaced persons in Ukraine and about as many in neighboring countries. Most are in Poland, Germany, Hungary and Romania.
LOG/WoH President Frank Franke: “Our operations continue to focus on the situation of migrants in Romania, and here especially on the regions of Maramures and Transcarpathia, where over 300,000 refugees urgently need help. Our focus remains on needy mothers with their children. We are also pleased about the great commitment of non-governmental organizations that actively support us in the distribution of the goods. Our special thanks go to them, as well as to those companies and individual donors in Germany who accompany our work so impressively.”
