After an epic journey involving two broken vehicles and the assistance of other local aid groups, Oleh finally completed the second delivery of Tove Benefice aid to Lviv during the Christmas period. Once again, upon arrival it was necessary for Oleh to shelter for much of the day as 7 missiles were launched at Lviv, 2 of which made it through air defences. Of the aid sent from the Benefice, the food items were left with a refugee centre in Poland which Oleh passed through en-route, and warm clothing and blankets we given to the Banbury Aid Team who assisted Oleh with some of his journey. This team will distribute the items to where it is needed most in Ukraine. The medical items and generator which Oleh took on to Lviv will be distributed once again by Oleh’s volunteer aid network contact, Iryna, with the items mostly likely going to the Bakhmut and Kherson areas. Oleh stayed on in the Lviv area to see his family who remain there, and also to see work colleagues before returning to Towcester on 10th January. We would like to thank EM Rogers Transport from Northampton who have very generously arranged to repatriate the broken vehicles back to the UK without charge. Arrangements have been made with the respective garages to gain a refund and a replacement so that Oleh may drive out in February as part of the next aid mission.
