Switzerland carries out the largest ever aid operation to eastern Ukraine.
On September 4 the first convoy of a total of 144 lorries carrying Swiss relief supplies crossed the line of contact bound for Donetsk, accompanied by six members of the Swiss Humanitarian Aid Unit (SHA). It’s providing local communities in need in the conflict zone with water treatment chemicals, hospital equipment, and medical material to combat the pandemic. In total, the aid being delivered amounts to around CHF 12 million. It’s Switzerland’s 13th shipment of aid to eastern Ukraine since
