04 Mar 2022 The European Hunting Community stands in Solidarity with Ukraine
Brussels, 4 March 2022 – In response to the humanitarian crisis in the Ukraine, FACE together with the CIC has been mobilising its member organisations and partners, and will be facilitating assistance to the humanitarian aid organisations currently coordinating efforts at the border.
This will include collaboration with the (Hungarian) National Charity Hunting Organisation (OJV KNP Kft.), with whom CIC have recently signed a Cooperation Agreement. Hunting associations and hunters from neighbouring countries – including Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, and Poland – are providing independent assistance to Ukrainian people, as well as joining and complementing existing humanitarian efforts on their borders to Ukraine.
Tables, benches and kitchen equipment, as well as food and soft drinks have already been sourced. Plans further include serving warm meals to refugees crossing the border from Ukraine into Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania. In Hungary, local hunting associations and hunters are also setting up food distribution stations together with local non-governmental organisations already present at the borders, as well as at other locations such as shelters near the Ukrainian border.
As part of the FACE-CIC initiative, we are donating hot food (including game meat), drinks, as well as important equipment and necessary materials to be used in multiple stations for helping Ukrainian people entering neighbouring countries.
