Out of the Cold
SmartAID's "OUT OF THE COLD" winterization program in Ukraine has made significant progress in addressing the urgent needs of the affected communities.
The organization has undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the requirements and has initiated the distribution of essential utilities to combat the electricity shortage during the winter season.
This program offers a range of solutions, including solar generators, power banks, battery chargers, and generators of various sizes, to ensure access to electricity for both service providers and refugees.
Recognizing the critical importance of electricity in various settings, such as health facilities, shelters, and kitchens that provide meals, SmartAID has prioritized addressing this necessity.
By supplying the required equipment, the organization aims to bridge the gap and ensure uninterrupted access to electricity, thereby supporting crucial services for the affected population.
The impact of SmartAID's efforts extends beyond immediate relief. The organization has implemented a sustainable approach by incorporating solar panels into the units it installs.
This long-term strategy allows for the generation of clean energy and reduces the cost of electricity while minimizing dependence on traditional fuel sources. With a lifespan of over a decade, these installations contribute to greater energy efficiency and economic sustainability.
In addition to the focus on electricity provision, SmartAID has also extended its support to medical facilities.
By deploying mobile clean energy units, the organization has aided 35 medical facilities, enabling them to continue operating efficiently despite the challenging winter conditions.
Furthermore, thousands of battery chargers and power banks have been distributed to women, youth, and families residing in more than 45 shelters, ensuring they have reliable access to power for their essential devices.
Through these endeavors, SmartAID is making a tangible and positive impact on the lives of those affected by the harsh Ukrainian winter.
By addressing the electricity shortage, supporting medical facilities, and providing power solutions to vulnerable individuals and families, the organization is empowering communities and fostering resilience.
SmartAID's commitment to sustainable solutions further ensures a lasting impact, improving the overall well-being of the affected population and reducing their reliance on conventional energy sources.
