Project Report | Mar 7, 2023
One year of war - one year of help

By Theresa Aengenheyster | Project Leader

Sirens wail, bombs fall, entire cities lie in ruins - and millions of people are 
left with nothing. The alliance organizations of Aktion Deutschland Hilft support the affected
families at all stages of the flight: in Ukraine, in neighboring countries and
at the place of refuge.
In the cold months, winter aid in Ukraine and neighboring countries is of
fundamental importance. Several alliance organizations from Aktion Deutschland Hilft support the local
people: with blankets and thick winter clothing, stoves, heaters, solid fuels
and generators. Thanks to your donations, helpers can distribute hot drinks and meals and
refugees can find contact points and soup kitchens to warm up.

In addition, our alliance organizations winterize destroyed residential buildings,
schools, kindergartens and community rooms. They renovate war-damaged buildings
and roofs, install new doors and windows, and repair heaters. Alliance organizations have been delivering essential goods to Ukraine and
neighboring countries since the first days. These include field kitchens, kitchen
and accommodation tents and medical supplies and wheelchairs. The helpers work closely with local partner organizations to ensure that the
aid arrives.
Hygiene items such as menstrual products, diapers or soap are also important 
for people fleeing. Helpers from our alliance and countless volunteers lend a
hand so that the products reach the people. A lot has changed in Ukraine since the beginning of the war, including for
agriculture. Fields cannot be cultivated and crops cannot be delivered. Seed gur, fertilizer
and diesel have become unaffordable for many farms. There are also mined fields,
destroyed machines and a lack of animal feed. We are strengthening agriculture in Ukraine so that small farms in particular can
maintain their production.
They hear bombs falling and sirens wail, experience violence and destruction: the
war in Ukraine hits the children with full force. Child protection centers are
set up, sick children are evacuated and girls and boys are helped to come to
terms with their experiences.
Bombs, fighting, expulsion - many elderly people from Ukraine have experienced
this before. In addition, fleeing is particularly exhausting in old age. Particular attention is paid to the needs of older women and men. With local
partner organisations, the helpers provide food, medicine, blankets and help
cope with trauma. Support, in the form of cash or vouchers, is of great importance to people on
the run. After the women and men had to leave everything behind, they are given
back a bit of self-efficacy in the form of cash or vouchers. So you can decide
for yourself what you need and want to buy. You as a donor make this help possible. Thank you for giving new hope to the
children, women and men of Ukraine with your donation.
