War in Ukraine: HEKS provides emergency aid for 700,000 Swiss francs
Despite all the urgent appeals from the international community, Russia has so far continued its invasion of Ukraine undeterred. Over half a million people are already fleeing to western Ukraine and neighbouring countries from places witnessing the fiercest fighting. Should the war continue for much longer, their number could soon be in the millions. For now, therefore, HEKS/EPER is providing humanitarian aid to the tune of 700,000 francs. Besides humanitarian aid for the suffering civilian population in Ukraine itself, this sum will also help people on the move in neighbouring countries and in Switzerland.
