Our latest interventions in Ukraine – 7-13 March 2022

12-13 March 2022

FSD supports volunteers, who transport women and children to the Polish border with a fleet of vans/mini-busses. The Ukrainians who use this service usually can’t afford bus or train tickets. FSD covers up for fuel costs of these vehicles. Some people are from very remote locations and see such large busses for the first time. For mothers, it’s a point of leaving the husbands, parents, homeland.

Beneficiaries:

12 March – 39 Females, 55 children
13 March – 35 Females, 40 Children

Our team helped to organize a bomb shelter for the citizens not far from a local kindergarten in Kramatorsk. Water, kitchen towels, plastic cups and plates and buckets are provided. On the bottom you can see euro-palettes which are used as provisional beds and seatings. By that people are able to avoid sitting/sleeping on the cold floor of these bunkers.
