Deutsche Botschaft Kiew: Germany continues to spend more and more money on international aid. Especially in the years 2016 and 2017 the amount has increased and also in the coming year there will be humanitarian projects of the international aid organization ADRA in Ukraine and Germany will donate 850.000 EUR.
The European Union and a joint group of several international organizations are intensifying humanitarian aid for the people of Eastern Ukraine. Without this help, it is difficult for people to fight alone, especially the people who are suffering from constant attacks, and it is becoming more and more difficult to get basic supplies. The need for humanitarian aid is constantly increasing. Already in the years 2016 to 2019, the humanitarian work of ADRA in Ukraine was financed with 4.6 million Euro from Germany. ADRA will also contribute an additional 100,000 euros from its own funds.
People in Eastern Ukraine live in great insecurity, many social services are no longer functioning properly. There is a lack of medical personnel, nurses and basic care. Food is scarce and prices are inflated. The ADRA project provides direct assistance to the most conflict-affected people in isolated communities along the contact line in the Luhansk and Donetsk areas.
The main focus is on the elderly, people with disabilities, single parents and large families, including internally displaced persons. ADRA will enhance humanitarian protection, the psycho-social health of traumatized conflict victims, including many children, and improve access to basic services, in particular, health and social services, as well as drinking water. ADRA will also provide social transport services to those in need.
