Gift of the Givers, a South African charity, has announced that it will deliver humanitarian aid to Ukraine, where the UN estimates that over one million citizens have fled the Russian invasion.

In a statement, the charity said it will “provide emergency medical and non-medical assistance to front line facilities and internally displaced civilians inside Ukraine”.

“Discussions with various pharmaceutical companies, medical aid societies and corporate companies wanting to support the initiative are underway,” it said.

Founder of the NGO, Dr. Imtiaz Sooliman, stated that the intervention is necessitated by the call for assistance from South Africans stuck in Ukraine. Some South Africans are married to Ukrainians and some are residents in the country.
