I want to thank the company Lugansk carrier "Transpele" for free shipping the goods from Kiev to Ivano-Frankovsk. You know sometimes there is a feeling that no one will help us, as we do not begin to help themselves.

Yesterday, in Ivano-Frankivsk was attended by representatives of our reliable partner in the implementation of projects in the Netherlands.
The meeting discussed the problems IDPs in Ivano-Frankivsk, solutions, plans for new projects. This means that the idea of a settlement for displaced people began to take concrete features.

Today we visited our friends bikers from the Netherlands. A meeting was organized with the settlers of Ivano-Frankivsk, where they expressed the problems that concern them in the first place. After their visit, there should be an article in the Dutch Journal of the problems of IDPs and their trip to Ukraine.
Thanks Bob Wouda for not forgetting about us. Thanks Mark Bergsteijn for this visit. I think that this is not our last meeting. Some may express pessimism about such meetings - talked and dispersed. But all the foreign guests - it is not our government that can barely speak and paint rosy reports. These people are looking for reliable partners, they want to help - and so come to see with their own eyes and to assess the scale of assistance. Even if one person after written article agrees to help Ukraine - it is a great achievement for all of us. So together to win.

Already 80 sets of medicine found their owners among the settlers. Thank you to all our partners for selected drugs and their transportation from Kiev to Ivano-Frankovsk.

At the Monday, August 3rd there was a meeting with a representative of the OSCE monitoring mission.
Basically, I did not expect to meet something grand. The meeting was attended by representatives of four organizations that are made up of IDPs, based IDPs and deal with the problems of IDPs. We talked about the problems of displaced persons, we were told that as part of the mission of the OSCE, they are entitled only to monitor the situation, summarize it in their reports and to propose to the Government to solve these problems. I think it's at least something.
But the biggest positive in this meeting, I see that the representatives of the organizations met together and discussed the main issues on which work is, even developed a small, but understanding the way of solving problems.
The most important issues have been raised - is the problem of housing and land. In the near future we will, I think, to develop a strategy to solve this problem.


Thanks to our partners «Meest Group» has come from Kiev drugs, many of which were recorded.
Unfortunately this is not the first-aid kits, namely drugs. A list of drugs I wrote earlier. We now need to expand each of these medications in a separate package. Unfortunately, it's only for 100 displaced families.
