In the first seven days since Romanian Post announced its involvement in support of citizens affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, by providing logistical infrastructure in all centres dedicated to this campaign, over 50 tons of products have been collected nationwide. The entire quantity was transported by Romanian Post's cars and handed over to the colleagues from Ukrposhta, at the Halmeu Border Crossing Point, in the presence of the authorities.
The donations consisted of: non-perishable food (water, canned food, packaged food etc), hygiene products (diapers, disinfectant wet wipes, toilet paper, absorbents etc), clothing and footwear (women/men/children, thermal clothing, gloves, backpacks, shoes in good/new condition etc), support (pillows, tents, mattresses, cutlery, binoculars, folding blankets, large capacity portable batteries, walkie-talkies, walkie-talkies, two-way radios, thermal imaging cameras etc), heating and lighting products (tents, thermal blankets, sleeping bags, electric radiators or other heating appliances, torches, candles, lamps etc), medical equipment to support the injured (first-aid kits, folding wheelchairs and frames for people with locomotor disabilities, walking sticks etc).
"I wanted to be present when the first donations collected by the Romanian Post go to those in acute need of support. I thus wanted to make a concrete contribution to this humanitarian action, as a sign of respect for all the Romanians who got involved, alongside us, in this event in support of human values. In this way, I believe that we are expressing our compassion for our neighbours who are so hard hit. The "Solidarity with Ukraine" campaign, organized by the Romanian Post Office, made available to the county authorities the company's accommodation facilities for receiving refugees, as well as the collection of donations through the national postal network and their free transport to Ukraine. Of course we don't have to stop there! Support for our neighbours must continue. I am confident that this support to Ukrainian citizens will continue and I want to assure Romanian citizens that we will carry out our mission to the end", said Valentin Ștefan, CEO of Romanian Post.
