BAPTIST AID SENDS 60 POWER GENERATORS TO UKRAINE

 

The Hungarian Baptist Aid has sent 60 power generators and eight power inverters to Ukraine in collaboration with the Hungary Helps humanitarian programme, the organisation said on Tuesday. The Baptist Aid told MTI it will send 15 more high-performance generators to the neighbouring country over the coming weeks. It cited Tristan Azbej, the state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office responsible for helping persecuted Christians, as saying that the crisis caused by the destruction of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure was getting worse. “This is why the aid that we’re sending is so important,” Azbej said. He said ten of the 60 generators were being sent to the western Ukrainian region of Transcarpathia, while 50 will be going to the suburb of Kyiv that has been heavily affected by the war. Meanwhile, the Baptist Aid said it has welcomed more than 30,000 refugees over the last ten months in Tiszabecs, in eastern Hungary. The organisation said it is providing accommodation, food and hygienic care to hundreds of refugees in several locations. It also helps refugees find jobs, offers dormitory placement for secondary school students arriving alone and organises camps for children.
