The second batch of humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine departs today from the port of Limassol.
A campaign to collect humanitarian aid in the more than 40 centers that operated throughout Cyprus was completed this week. The donated items were transported by the National Guard to the port of Limassol where it will first be sent to Romania and then to Ukraine.
It is estimated that 70 tons of humanitarian aid, prepared by the Cyprus Red Cross, will be sent in this shipment alone. Items consist of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, civil protection materials, and personal hygiene items donated by private citizens, organizations and companies across the island.
The collection of aid was coordinated by the Citizen's Commissioner, Panagiotis Sentronas, in close cooperation with the Civil Defense Unit of Cyprus.
