The charity organization Help Ukraine, created by Ukrainian businessmen, has organized a hub in the city of Husi (Romania) for the collection and distribution of humanitarian aid for Ukraine, the collected goods will be sent via Moldova to Odessa, Mykolaiv and Kherson.
The opening on March 19 of a new route for the delivery of humanitarian and medical cargo to the southern regions of Ukraine with a transshipment center in Romania was written by CEO and co-owner of the TIS port Andriy Stavnitser on Facebook .
“We are opening the southern corridor for the delivery of humanitarian and medical supplies. Odessa and Mykolaiv will now also be able to receive aid – the new Help Ukraine hub is already operating in Romania … Odessa, we just happen to be a city now “rear”, and we need to supply Mykolaiv and from there, if possible, Kherson,” Stavnitser wrote in the social network.
He clarified that the Husi warehouse is working and that philanthropists can already send humanitarian aid to Ukrainians.
“The goods transit through Moldova, so the center in Romania does not accept dual-use goods. Only medicine, food, baby food and hygiene items. Aid will be distributed by the Municipal Center for Humanitarian Aid, Information and Economic Support (Odessa), 59a Mechnikova Street,” says the businessman.
