Petition to the newly elected President of Ukraine: Allow the humanitarian aid to reach its destination
Caritas Hungary asks for help from the Ukrainian President’s office, to allow aid shipments initiated by Hungarian and other foreign charities to reach families in need simply and quickly, in Transcarpathia and Ukraine, without bureaucratic obstacles and restrictions.
Due to the economic crisis that has been going on for years and the war in eastern Ukraine, the population of Ukraine is in a particularly difficult social situation. And, people living in the Carpathian Basin, especially in Transcarpathia, are suffering the most difficult situation.
Due to huge inflation, many people find it extremely difficult to obtain basic food and heat. Caritas Hungary, with other aid organizations, has been trying to make everyday life of the people living in Transcarpathia and in the Ukrainian areas affect by war easier. For years, Caritas Hungary has supplied food, firewood, medical equipment, and volunteer doctors. And, with in-kind support of the families of war victims, Caritas Hungary has also helped to provide their children holiday opportunities in Hungary.
Seniors living alone and families with children are in the most difficult and most vulnerable situation.
And, unfortunately, institutions like Caritas Hungary, often encounter extreme difficulty in serving people suffering the worst need in Ukraine.
Extremely long wait-times at the border, bureaucrats refusing to clear or accept donations into Ukraine, constantly changing rules for donations...corruption...all of these commonplace occurences makes administration and delivery of aid difficult for aid organizations.
Caritas Hungary, therefore, invites you to support our request to the new President of Ukraine, to enable relief organizations to send their donations and assist activity of the families in need in Transcarpathia and Eastern Ukraine, without administrative obstacles, and by simplifying rules for administering and delivering aid.
