Sorting and packing – for the first convoy
On Saturday, March 5, 2022, and the days leading up to it, over 100 volunteers helped us pick up and sort donations. Around 2,500 boxes and bags were piled up in the yard of the Christian relief organization TABEA e.V. in Swisttal, where the storage room of Menschenfreude e.V. is also located. These were assigned to the individual vehicles.
At the end of the day, two large trucks could be fully loaded with food and hygiene products. A team of Polish and Ukrainian riders set off that very day in the direction of Ternopil/Ukraine. The relief supplies are distributed to needy people in two orphanages and two children’s hospitals as well as in metro stations. It is urgent, say the helpers who have already been on the scene.
Relief convoy of Menschenfreude e.V.
Under these great conditions and with countless good wishes in our luggage, our first aid convoy started on March 8. Initially planned as one vehicle with trailer, it ended up as twelve vehicles with a total of 24 drivers. Included: warm blankets, sleeping bags, other hygiene items. What would still be needed locally, we would be able to buy with the help of the donations.
