Ministry of Foreign Affairs to provide humanitarian aid for the purchase of another ambulance
- Ministry of Foreign Affairs
At the request of the Ukrainian side, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will provide 370,000 euros in humanitarian aid for the purchase of an ambulance for the transport of premature babies and mothers. The donation agreement was signed today by the Acting Secretary-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Renata Cvelbar Bek, and the Ambassador of Ukraine to Slovenia, Mr Andrii Taran.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the humanitarian situation has rapidly deteriorated. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), more than 13 million people have been forced to flee their homes to save their lives. Refugees and internally displaced people face extreme humanitarian needs, including shortages of food, water, and medical and other sanitation supplies. Needs increase before winter, and children and their mothers are among the most vulnerable.
The ambulance will be fully equipped to international standards. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has allocated 580,000 euros for the purchase of ambulances so far. Two vehicles for the transport of injured people will be delivered by the end of 2022.
