Heavy rainings hit five counties of Ukraine in June which made tenthousands of houses unliveable, roads got damaged and bridges were destroyed. The Hungary Helps Agency offered 10 million HUF as a support and HIA applied it to create emergency packages and deliever them to the harmed locals.

The packages contained several kilograms of food and hygiene products and they were wrapped by the colleagues of HIA’s local office. The delivery of the 1100 packages started on 13th August in Ivano-Frankivsk and continued on the following days in Chernivtsi.
