First humanitarian aid truck leaves Cartagena Security Park for Ukraine

Non-perishable foodstuffs, medicines and sanitary materials that have been previously deposited in the neighbourhood associations of neighbourhoods and councils.

The first truck full of humanitarian aid collected from residents’ associations thanks to donations from Cartagena residents, and stored in the Cartagena Security Park, left this afternoon for Ukraine, as confirmed by the mayor, Noelia Arroyo, and it will take a day and a half to reach the border between Poland and Ukraine.

The association of Ukrainians in Cartagena is very grateful for the response they are receiving from the Cartagena society and ensures that material arrives continuously from the numerous collection points that have been enabled in the municipality. Material that they store, select and pack in the Civil Protection building of the Security Park, and which has allowed them to fill the first lorry that the company Disfrimur will transport to Ukraine selflessly to the border between Poland and Ukraine, to be able to access the country through one of the humanitarian corridors.

The mayor thanked the work being done by the staff of Social Services and Civil Protection of the City of Cartagena in this device, which together with the association of Ukrainians is networking to collect the donated material in neighborhood associations and neighborhood councils, and then move it to the facilities of the Security Park.

“Networking brings results and here we have the proof. In record time, all the material donated by the people of Cartagena has been collected, stored, classified and packaged, and a great job has been done to ensure that this aid reaches the conflict zone as quickly as possible,” said Arroyo.

In order for the work to be as effective as possible, said the mayoress, the people of Cartagena must deposit the aid at the collection points set up in the neighbourhood associations, which is then stored in the security park for classification. The material sent in this first convoy to Ukraine includes non-perishable foodstuffs, medicines and medical supplies, which have been selected and classified by the NGO Farmamundi. In addition to other basic necessities, blankets and warm clothing for the Ukrainian population.
