Germany will provide Ukraine with another EUR 1.5 million for UNICEF emergency measures, reported the German Embassy in Ukraine.
Germany recently decided to grant one million euros for the humanitarian activities of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees or UNHCR. It will continue to provide support for the UNICEF Children’s Fund project "Emergency Response in Eastern Conflict Areas of Ukraine" in the amount of an additional EUR 1.5 million.
"This assistance is again provided directly to the part of the population that needs special protection and suffers from the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine: infants, children and their mothers, youth and the elderly," the report said.
The project’s priorities are improvement of medical, psychological and social care, guaranteed provision of safe drinking water, as well as measures on improving sanitation.
"Germany continues its solidarity with the people of Ukraine and stands by its side. In the future, we will also help people who are in trouble in the east of Ukraine. UNICEF is an experienced partner for us in this case," noted German Ambassador Ernst Reichel.
