MPCT Deliver Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

Huw Lewis and Allan Peet set off for Ukraine on Friday 1st April

Last Friday, 1st April, MPCT CEO Huw Lewis MBE and MPCT Logistics Manager Allan Peet set off for Ukraine with a van packed full of essential items donated by the MPCT family and beyond. Although the journey was a gruelling one thanks to the knock-on effect the conflict has had on transport infrastructure across Europe, coupled with long waits on the Ukrainian border itself, those difficulties pale in comparison to the suffering currently endured by millions of Ukrainians. Therefore, it was worth every moment in order to ensure every item donated made it to Lviv, from where it was packed into vehicles by those already inside the country making the brave passage into those areas where the aid is most needed. The pair returned safely on Tuesday 5th April.

“This shows the humanitarian aid you all kindly sent to us. It was delivered to Vyshhorod, and then transferred on to Bucha in the Kyiv region. Combined with other partners, the total delivery included 116 boxes of food and 70 boxes of personal hygiene products.” – Huw Lewis, MPCT CEO

MPCT Logistics Manager Allan Peet added: “The trip was of course fulfilling on a personal level, and it was an eye-opening experience to be in such an environment from a civilian perspective, having been involved in humanitarian missions on many occasions during my time serving in the Armed Forces. However, what I saw when we arrived at Lviv to drop off the goods was extremely humbling – especially those young people who were taking the deliveries onwards to the front line in Kyiv, risking their own lives in order to assist their fellow citizens.”
