Our goal was to provide assistance as far east as possible. We decided to act on our own, using all the contacts acquired over the years of our market activities (thank you, Tork!).
Success of the humanitarian aid action for Ukraine
The action was a success. Food, basic necessities and medicines reached Ukraine. On the way back to Poland, we helped transport escaping Ukrainian women and children. A special passenger was a cat who was the only one able to take his own house on the journey. We named him Bayraktar and he has already found a new family in Poland that is taking good care of him.
In Western Ukraine, life still looks like in Poland. Young people walk the beautiful streets of Lviv, sipping coffee from local cafes. People go to work, shopping, take the rattling public transportation and try to live normally. Every now and then, sirens wail or a patrol with a long weapon walks along the sidewalk, leading Russian divers in handcuffs. The residents don’t panic, there is confidence and belief in the quick end of the war during their conversations.
