Delivery of biscuits to Kamianets Podilskyi – part of case #309
We delivered life-changing camping supplies and white goods to Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, and Ivan Frankivsk refugee camp
In-country refugees trapped in these heavily shelled areas are forced to survive without access to a safe home or kitchen. Seven million people are currently internally displaced in Ukraine; unable to cook their food, they risk malnutrition and a multitude of gastrointestinal infections. Sunflower coordinated delivery of essential camping and cooking equipment to 1000 people (mostly women, children, and the elderly) in Kyiv, Kharkiv and Chernihiv in the north and east of the country, and Ivano Frankivsk refugee camp.
Delivered: 22 June 2022
Receiver: Roman Cherneha – coordinator of the Anti-Crisis Humanitarian Aid Center
Supported by: Andreea Oprea, Catalina Anghel, Asociatia Pastel, Citizen of our Planet – Chillu Piper Foundation, US and Hungarian citizens Stuart and Kate
Provided: 50 electric kettles, 30 microwave ovens, 50 table electric heaters, 10 refrigerators, 10 washing machines, and transport to where it was all needed.
We delivered critical medical supplies to Chuhuiv amid heavy missile strikes
NGO Tribuna, along with our volunteer driver, delivered medical and hygiene products to the hospital in Chuhuiv – located in the northeast of Ukraine and actively under attack by Russian forces. The driver defied the Russian military by completing this essential delivery through heavy missile strikes. His courage, and the aid from our supporters, have helped countless civilians in desperate need of assistance.

We delivered essential food to feed in-country refugees in Kamianets Podilskyi, Ukraine

Sunflower duly heard their request, and thanks to the help of our supporters these supplies will soon arrive where they are needed most.
