Within the framework of ADRA Ukraine project, with the support of the UN World Food Program, the project on mobile distribution of food assistance is actively implemented in settlements of Kherson and Kharkiv regions. Food packages weighing 17 kg have been received by residents of Derhachi, Guta settlement, such villages as Starytsia, Rzhavets in Kharkiv region, and Velyka Oleksandrivka village and Velyka Lepetiha village in Kherson region. These settlements were isolated for a long time, and now they are in a critical humanitarian situation due to the impossibility of regular deliveries of food, etc.

ADRA Ukraine continues to provide psychological support to the affected population on an ongoing basis. Today, psychological assistance is provided within several projects, in particular, LEAP (with the assistance of the Canadian government) and GFFO (with the assistance of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs). These projects cover Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Luhansk, Donetsk, Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Poltava and Vinnytsia regions. Psychological assistance is provided to certain categories of vulnerable population groups and includes individual consultations, group meetings, trainings, etc.

With the support of ADRA Norway and caring citizens of Norway, we have managed to purchase vital medical devices – vacuum apparatuses that treat the most complex traumatic wounds and burns. Hospitals in Odesa, Poltava, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv and Mykolaiv regions have received this assistance. Patients have a chance to recover in a short time that contributes to their early rehabilitation. This is especially relevant now, in the conditions of martial law in the country. The process of rehabilitation of a severely injured person is accelerated by almost three times. It is almost impossible to buy vacuum apparatuses in Ukraine. Thus, this assistance has become extremely important and necessary for hospitals and seriously injured patients.
