French volunteers sent a load of humanitarian assistance for the Ukrainian fighters in Donbas combat zone. According to the command of the Joint Forces, the cargo is worth some 70,000 U.S. dollars. It includes massage devices, medical clothes and orthoses, the fixing braces used after injuries, as well as an X-ray machine and special beds with mattresses for the severely injured.

Previously, President Poroshenko claimed the European Council would allocate $4.5 million for humanitarian aid for Donbas. “The European Council decided to allocate $4.5 million for humanitarian aid for Donbas, This is another result of our meetings, our cooperation. I congratulate the EU and Donbas residents on this important decision to help Ukraine, to help Donbas,” Poroshenko noted.

In December 2018, the UN estimated that over 3.8 million residents of the war-torn Donbas need humanitarian assistance. 

“UN has requested for $204 million for the humanitarian operation in the east of Ukraine at the end of the past year, where 3.8 million people wait for the aid. The year is almost finished but the amount of funds makes only 37% from the payment plan per each recipient,” the message of the UN press office said.
