WAM

The UAE has dispatched a ship carrying 250 tonnes of aid to support those affected by the crisis in Ukraine.

The shipment, which includes personal care supplies, lighting equipment and blankets, will arrive in Poland and Romania before being transported to Ukraine.

The Office of International Affairs, in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is also preparing another batch of aid comprising school supplies, including computers for students.

Since the Ukraine crisis began, the UAE has provided urgent relief supplies and has pledged $100 million to support Ukrainian civilians.

The UAE also established an air bridge, sending 11 aircraft carrying some 550 tonnes of food and medical supplies, 2,520 electric generators and six ambulances.

This is in addition to dispatching relief aircraft to support Ukrainian refugees in neighbouring countries such as Poland, Moldova and Bulgaria.
