The closest Disaster AId International partner to the Ukraine, Prague based Disaster Aid Europe (DAE), has been in constant contact with Ukrainian Rotarians since the begining of the Crisis.
This has ensured they are clear in what is needed.
DAE has been acting as a collection point for the items needed by the people affected by the crisis.
Aid equipment, and donations for locally purchased materials have been shipped to Prague from:
- Rotarians across Europe.
- Disaster Aid Internatioal partners as far away as Australia and the Americas.
Stage 1 Delivery
Last week the first delivery mission set off from Prague to Kosice In Slovakia, close to the Ukraine border.
In Kovice they were deliverd to a emergency warehouse that has been provided by a local Rotarian.
Stage 2 Delivery

The vans are operaterd by Ukrainian students who take the equipment over the boder to Uzhorod.
Once in Uzhorod the further distribution in managed by local Rotarians.
