As promised last week – emergency response arrived in Kherson today. The #EU4ResilientRegions programme delivered generators and water filters to the city’s hospitals. We would like to thank GIZ and our Ukrainian partners. More help co-financed by the EU and Germany is on the way”, commented Ambassador Matti Maasikas, Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine.

More support to Kherson is foreseen in the framework of the programme. It will aim to make sure that the people of Kherson can have access to services and decent living conditions as quickly as possible.

Kherson is the only regional city of Ukraine that was under occupation for nine months from the beginning of the Russian military invasion. One of the most urgent issues is providing medical and social institutions with power and running water. Therefore, the Kherson region is grateful for the immediate reaction of our partners from the European Union, who are assisting to return not only Ukraine, but also Europe to Kherson”, Yaroslav Yanushevych, Head of the Kherson Regional State Administration, said.

We are glad to return to Kherson region with emergency response aid packages. Supplying generators and water treatment plants will increase local institutions’ ability to meet local citizens’ medical needs. This is a priority in the newly liberated areas, but further aid for social institutions and CNAPs will follow”, Margarete Jacobi, Head of Component of EU4ResilientRegions at GIZ, said.
