On September 14th, a separate social trip organized by ADRA Ukraine took place in order to transport people with disabilities to the clinical sanatorium “Roshcha” in Pisochyn settlement, Kharkiv region, for their treatment and rehabilitation. In addition, another group of people was transported from the sanatorium to homes in Lozova. This is how the employees of the charitable organization responded to the request of the Lozova City Council of Kharkiv region. The assistance was made possible thanks to the social transportation project in cooperation with the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund.
“Support for people with disabilities is very important, especially in such a difficult time,” comments Viktoriia Kipkalo, a head of the Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Lozova City Council, “despite the active hostilities in the country, people with disabilities need planned rehabilitation, perhaps even more than before. So, we are very grateful to ADRA Ukraine for their help in providing free transport for this “trip”. You are doing an important thing for our community.”
Within the framework of ADRA Ukraine project on social transportation that is implemented in cooperation with the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, special attention is paid to the support of people with disabilities. With the intensification of hostilities in February 2022, the charitable organization carried out special trips to evacuate such people from Sloviansk and Bakhmut of Donetsk region. Since February 2022, thanks to this project, almost 3,000 people with disabilities have received transport support. In addition, in cooperation with the National Cancer Institute in Ukraine, ADRA Ukraine employees have provided transport assistance in evacuation abroad to people with serious cancer diseases.
Over the past seven months, more than 22,000 people have used free social trips, and more than 5,000 people have been evacuated. This activity goes on.
