Astarta Holding N.V. will assist in the delivery of international humanitarian aid to Ukraine under the UN World Food Programme.
Humanitarian cargoes will consist of food commodities, personal protective equipment and medical items. Astarta will render overland transport services from Poland to various destinations in Ukraine.
To perform the obligations, the Company set up a highly qualified team and allocated freight transport.
“Different humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians, including food aid of our own production and other items, is our company’s priority. We are also working on all options to increase our contribution. So when the UN World Food Program announced a call to supply humanitarian aid to Ukraine and was looking for partners, we offered our in-house capabilities for delivery across the country. I express my gratitude to the UN for the trust in our company. All funds received for the provision of services will also be used to help our country” said Viktor Ivanchyk, CEO of Astarta Holding N.V.
Since February 24, Astarta provided aid supplies worth UAH38m. These included one thousand tonnes of foodstuff (sugar, milk, meat and dairy products, flour, cereals) and other material resources, including transport. Thousands of evacuated civilians were housed in dedicated shelters set up in the regions of Astarta’s presence and were provided with necessary food, medicines and other necessities.
