As agreed with the Global Fund and with the Health Sub-cluster of the WHO Country Office in Ukraine, Alliance delivered eight-month supplies of prevention materials, medical goods and a YEARLY supply of rapid tests to the areas of Donbas outside control of the Ukrainian Government! It took 3 big trucks to deliver those goods!
The delivery included over 375 thousand condoms, 1.6 million disposable syringes, 1.9 million alcohol wipes, 27 thousand rapid tests for HIV, hepatitis and STIs, 200 thousand lubricants, etc. Test kits were delivered with a specially chartered refrigerator and those tests to be further delivered to Luhansk were packed in thermo boxes. This humanitarian delivery was effected in the time of serious complications in the activities of international humanitarian organizations and aggravation of the military conflict almost along the entire perimeter of the demarcation line.
All the approvals were received in advance, all moves of the trucks were agreed with the Antiterrorist Center, State Fiscal Service, and checkpoints of Sector B. Besides, the required formalities were coordinated with de facto authorities of the areas of Donbas outside control of the Ukrainian Government.
Today the supplies was unloaded in Horlivka and Makiyivka, with cargo delivered to the warehouse in Donetsk. Thus, 5 civil society organizations in Donetsk oblast and 1 organization in Luhansk oblast (in the areas not controlled by the central government) are provided with the required long-term supplies of consumables to implement prevention programs among the key affected populations!
Alliance expresses its sincere gratitude to all the partners at the territories controlled and not controlled by the Ukrainian Government for their help and support in the performance of this vital humanitarian operation.
