A humanitarian aid trip to Ukraine
For the second time in a month, we went to Ukraine to bring humanitarian aid. Together with the Children Help Foundation in Zywiec, we brought medicines to the hospital in Korostyshiv as well as food for the Saint Martin de Porres Center in Fastiv.
We also took with us an elderly couple who were hoping for transport to go back home near Kyiv. The trip was very long. In four days, we drove nearly four thousand kilometers. We split near Lviv. Bartek went to the south to pick up a daughter and a granddaughter of our passengers so that the entire family could go back home together. Me and Krzysztof Blecha from the Children Help Foundation and our guide Anton went to the hospital. Our car broke down on the way when after driving into a hole in the road the fuel supply was cut off. But after one and a half hours, we managed to move on.
On our way back, our car broke down again in the same way as when we were driving to Korostyshiv. This time we knew what to do, so we quickly managed to solve the problem. On Friday evening we were back home. But we won’t rest for long as on Tuesday we will be flying to Iraq.
