Greeks collect humanitarian aid to Ukrainians

With blankets in hand, bags of food, children’s clothes, medicines, even jars of olive oil and anything that could help the people of Ukraine, dozens of Thessalonians responded to the Ukrainian consulate’s call to collect humanitarian aid.

“People want to help in any way they can, whether they be Greeks, Ukrainians or Russians,” says Natalia, who volunteers to help classify and pack humanitarian aid. “It just breaks my heart,” she continues, “when you see how many people come to give the last, and cry, sympathizing with people in trouble.”

For example, a woman who came with a package of medicines says that she “brought what she had in her home first-aid kit,” or an elderly woman who collected her grandchildren’s clothes carefully folded them to give them to the kids in Ukraine.

However, according to the volunteers who collect things, they no longer need more clothes. What’s really missing are non-perishable foods, milk powder, baby diapers and medicines.

It is noted that the offices of the Vlatada Monastery (Μονής Βλατάδων) will be open daily to collect humanitarian aid – from 10 am to 1 pm and from 6 pm to 8 pm.

“Caravan” of humanitarian aid for Ukraine from the region of Central Macedonia and municipalities

Medicines and medical supplies for the war zones in Ukraine are also collected by the Central Macedonia region by decision of the Governor Apostolos Tsitsikostas.

Citizens who wish to help can bring medicines and medical supplies to the offices of Central Macedonia, Περιφέρειας Κεντρικής Μακεδονίας (st. 26, 64 and Vas. Olgas 198) from Wednesday March 2 to Thursday March 3, from 09:00 to 14:30. The humanitarian cargo will be sent together with the Consulate of Ukraine in Thessaloniki.

Private entrepreneurs who can offer specialized medical equipment such as surgical tables, respirators, ultrasound machines and surgical beds, as well as power generators, can contact the office of the Deputy Regional Minister of Health and Social Solidarity Melina Dermetzopoulou.

Support for the Ukrainian people intended to provide the municipality of Kalamary, who begins to collect humanitarian aid daily, from 07:00 to 15:00, in the municipal pharmacy at the address: οδού παπανικόλα 18, στο κίίοίας κοινωνικής πολιικής, στον δεύτερο όροφο.

We remind you that the collection of humanitarian aid and essential items has begun at the City Hall of Thessaloniki.
