“Living with the war” – Again Ukraine transport with 2 tons of medical material and other humanitarian goods
We are on the road again. For me it’s the second time within a few weeks. Last time I was at the Ukrainian border on December 17, 2022 to bring some generators through the snow to some people waiting desperately, freezing in the dark after the Ukrainian electricity infrastructure was significantly damaged.
Clinics, retirement homes, public facilities: Here are the generators arrived – an overview & a thank you video
Feedback after our aid transport in December 2022: Dr. Matthias Straub had set off for Menschenfreude e.V. to Ukraine. A total of 22 emergency generators – financed by donations – were handed over. Now the first acknowledgements of receipt have reached us – connected with personal words, pictures and huge gratitude.
Freezing in the dark, a concern for many people in the Ukraine nowadays. We want to do something about this, we want to deliver power generators which are hard to get in the Ukraine.…On December 14 I arrived in Bonn with 5 generators from the Netherlands. Given the winter weather I decided to leave on December 15 with a traget to arrive December 17. I picked up 17 more generators from Mönchengladbach and winter clothes from the Tabea warehouse in Swisstal donated from Menschenfreude people and then left. I intended to stay overnight at Nowy Tomysil in Poland.
From mid-December, volunteers from Menschenfreude e.V. will once again start a relief transport to Ukraine. In view of the impending winter, a total of twelve power generators are on board this time. The contact person is Dr. Matthias Straub, who, together with his wife Elka, has already accompanied previous relief transports of Menschenfreude e.V. and carried them out himself. Initially, the generators are intended for hospitals. Smaller equipment for schools and other institutions will also be brought into the country as part of further shipments. We therefore ask you once again for donations – and thank you at the same time for your previous support!
