About Covers timber and builders merchants:

The estimated cost for this is £50,000, to make the best use of the lorries’ capacity. 

PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY TO HELP THIS VERY IMPORTANT WORK IN UKRAINE 

Covers and UKtoUkraine are asking for your support to:

TRANSPORTING THE TRUCKS TO UKRAINE

The three trucks destinations are Bakhmut and Kherson (approx.. 1,900 miles from Chichester)

To make the most of this long journey we need to maximise the loads on the three vehicles...

Lorry 1 - will carry the forklift and the rescue vehicle.

Lorry 2 – supplies bought and donated by you

Lorry 3 – supplies bought and donated by you 

 

What happens once the Lorries are in Ukraine?

Once in Ukraine the plan that StaySafeUA has for the lorries (which may change as the situation is so dynamic) is:

Lorry 1 - To use for loading and transporting, the rescue vehicles, generators and aid pallets in Eastern Ukraine, Currently they hire lorries for this purpose.

Lorry 2 - To carry and transport a bakery for displaced people. StaySafeUA are converting a container into a bakery to be located adjacent to their shelter in Konstantynivka (outside Bakhmut)

Lorry 3 - To carry and transport a custom shower container (containing six shower cabins, water storage containers, and a plumbing system that can operate without a reliable water source)

 

 THANK YOU – YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT WILL MAKE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE TO THESE VITAL INITIATIVES IN UKRAINE
