The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will begin to coordinate non-governmental aid to Ukraine

The Foreign Ministry announced on Sunday the creation of a special section that will be responsible for coordinating all Israeli non-governmental humanitarian efforts for Ukraine.

The department, which was created at the request of dozens of civil society organizations, will be headed by Israel’s Ambassador to the Czech Republic, Daniel Meron, who will help connect civil society groups to ongoing efforts of the Israeli government and other countries.

Earlier on Sunday, the Foreign Ministry announced a series of measures aimed at providing additional aid to Ukraine and refugees fleeing the war-torn country.

The measures include the transfer of six giant electric generators to a hospital in Lviv “which will allow continuous operation even without power supply”.

Foreign Ministry personnel stationed at Ukrainian border crossings will provide aid and assistance to refugees — Jewish and non-Jewish — with a focus on providing winter gear, the ministry said.

He also noted the establishment of a field hospital staffed by Israeli personnel in Ukraine, confirmed by the Health Ministry on Saturday. The hospital will be run by medical staff from Clalit Health Services, Sheba Medical Center and other hospitals, and is expected to begin operations this week.

The ministry said it will also facilitate the “continuous transfer of humanitarian aid” to Ukraine and neighboring countries according to their needs.
