Diary of an aid mission to Ukraine - Part 5

In this video Tim talks about the sense of achievement felt by successfully making the delivery of aid to the Ukrainian volunteers in Kyiv despite ever present risk of air raids.

Large quantities of aid are being delivered to the Polish border or dropped in Lviv just across the border. This can mean that the aid becomes dissolved across the country and does not always get to where it is most needed.

Our collaboration with local NGO's means that we can ensure the aid gets to exactly where it needs to go. In this case this means an increased risk for our team. The welcome and thanks we received from the team in Kyiv makes it all worth while.

Tim has just returned from his 4th mission to Ukraine delivering humanitarian supplies and first aid training.

The team drove from Scotland to Poltava which is 4 hours east of Kyiv in Ukraine. The risk has increased significantly over the past few weeks with Russian drone and missile attacks becoming more and more frequent across the country.
