A collection point for humanitarian aid for Ukrainians was opened on Europa square
A collection point for humanitarian aid for Ukrainians was opened on Europa square. We are currently collecting medical supplies and first aid kits.
Karolis Sankauskas, CEO at “Projektavimo Sprendimai” project company, which previously operated in these premises, has applied for the possibility of establishing a support logistics center here.
“We have decided to expand the scope of support provided and to transport aid to areas beyond the reach of other charities and initiatives. We must hurry, so we mobilized a huge number of people who can collect, distribute and transport as much aid as possible. We managed to collect not only humanitarian aid, but also get off-road vehicles so that Ukrainians would have transport to travel around the war zones,” – says Karolis Sankauskas who organizes support for Ukrainians.
The support point has been opened in a convenient place for Vilnius residents – on the ground floor of the Vilnius City Administration building (Konstitucijos Ave., 3). The point can be entered from the outside, from the side of Europa square. The distribution point is marked with the colors of the Ukrainian flag, so it will not be difficult to identify the place.
“In the face of tragedy, everyone is looking for opportunities to contribute to the organization of assistance to Ukrainians. We are the municipal real estate managers, so, among other company initiatives, we show solidarity by providing premises for the logistics center for free,” – says Saulius Barauskas, director of Vilnius development company.
Any humanitarian aid is welcome at the collection point. In particular, medical assistance with medicines, disinfectants (hydrogen peroxide), various bandages (plasters, pressure bandages), surgical instruments, and first aid kits.
At the point, initiative volunteers will receive support every day from 11:00 to 20:00. The supplies must be packed in plastic bags or boxes labeled in English or Russian.
Last week, three buses full of humanitarian aid and four technically prepared and refueled off-road vehicles went from the point to trusted people in the Kyiv and Kharkiv regions.
