Truckloads of protective equipment for Ukraine and Romania

“The Covid-19 pandemic is pushing Ukraine towards its worst recession in decades – possibly a depression – with devastating consequences for its most vulnerable people,” wrote a UN report in 2020. Ukraine was already one of the poorest countries in Europe. Now the situation is unspeakably hard. Global Hand partner Mission Without Borders was excited when a donor in the UK offered a massive quantity of PPE through our network: 26,000 face masks, 1,500 coveralls, and hundreds of nurses’ hats and medical shoe covers. They took the two truckloads of PPE to their projects in Ukraine and Romania, including soup kitchens, schools, childcare centres and community medical centres. “They are desperate for PPE,” they said. “Our staff and the recipients were very happy to receive the much-needed equipment, especially since the pandemic restrictions and safety measures are continuing, and demand a large volume of PPE every day.”
