Global Humanitaria continues to carry out aid activities in Ukraine. There, we have made another delivery of food to Secondary School 19 in Zhytomyr, a town near Kiev that has suffered from Russian attacks in recent days. The NGO is working with local counterparts to deliver food to children all over the country.

Food deliveries are taking place in places where we are taking steps to establish alliances with counterparts who work in Ukraine and in Dorohusk, on the Polish border. The Chair of the organization, Andrés Torres, wanted to communicate the state of distress of these minors and their families in Zhytomyr: “By day they are at school, but at night, some of these minors are sleeping in bunkers”.

Global Humanitaria has been delivering food kits to different schools in Ukraine, such as the one in the image of Zhytomyr, which has 1,338 pupils. We have dressed “Globalita”, the NGO’s mascot, in the Ukraine flag as a sign of solidarity with those who are suffering the atrocities of this war.

The organization will also deliver basic humanitarian aid to the refugee center in Dorohusk on the Polish border. In a third phase, if the conflict extends for longer, provisions have been made to provide educational assistance to displaced Ukrainian children in Spain.
 
At war since 24 February
To date, the war is calculated to have caused the death of more than 2,000 civilians, according to the Ukraine State Emergency Service (according to RTVE) and the United Nations has raised the number of refugees to nearly 3 million people. Approximately 400,000 children and their families are fleeing to bordering countries. Poland, with a population of 38 million inhabitants, has received around 1.6 million displaced persons in these past 20 days.
