Humanitarian Aid for the Ukrainian Army
The main goal of Life&Peace in supporting the Ukrainian army is to provide assistance as quickly as possible. We have already supplied a large quantity of helmets and body armor, medical supplies, and humanitarian aid to active units, as well as ambulances and vehicles for military personnel in hotspots across Ukraine. Every day, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine defend the land, thereby giving us the opportunity to live, see the clear sky above us, and sleep peacefully.
Provided assistance to: Formation of Boyarska Territorial Defense Unit No. 1 named after Yevhen Konovalets. Due to the start of Russian military aggression against Ukraine on February 24, 2022, we began providing humanitarian aid not only to Ukrainian refugees residing in Poland but also to military units. One of our largest cases involved over 1000 kg of humanitarian aid for the formation of Boyarska Territorial Defense Unit No. 1 named after Yevhen Konovalets.
Why is humanitarian aid needed in war right now?
Saving lives: Humanitarian aid includes medical assistance, food aid, water, and sanitation services that can save the lives of injured soldiers. Medical resources and medications help treat injuries and illnesses, while food aid ensures the provision of sustenance to the military, which is particularly crucial in the conditions of prolonged warfare.
Boosting morale: Humanitarian aid can also help boost the morale of soldiers who are enduring challenging conditions on the front lines. Receiving humanitarian aid, such as letters, care packages with personal belongings, and similar items, can remind soldiers that they are not forgotten and that there are people who support them.
Supporting the civilian population: During war, the civilian population also suffers and may be left without access to essential resources such as food, water, medical assistance, and shelter. Humanitarian aid can help provide basic life-saving necessities to the civilian population, improving their living conditions and aiding in recovery after the conflict.
Preventing a humanitarian catastrophe: Military conflicts can lead to humanitarian catastrophes, such as famine, epidemics, and displacement. Humanitarian aid can help prevent or mitigate such catastrophes by providing necessary resources and services to support people in need.
