In response to the desperate situation of the partner Chernivtsi National University and its request for help, Palacký University Olomouc has launched a collection of material aid. From now until 8 April, the collection will take place at the Contact Point of the UP Volunteering Centre in the courtyard of the Armoury in the premises of the UP Student Club.

A detention centre for refugees from war zones has been set up right on the grounds of Chernivtsi University in southwest Ukraine. It currently houses several thousand people. And they are running out of the basic necessities in this makeshift camp.

Palacký University together with Caritas Olomouc and the Olomouc District Chamber of Commerce are responding to the request for help. The announced collection is to cover acutely lacking materials. Out of dozens of possible items, the organisers of the event have decided to focus mainly on those that might be owned and easily missed by people, or those that are easy to purchase. The following items will be collected: flashlights (torches), batteries of all kinds, power banks, C-type mobile phone chargers, lightning connectors (for data transfers), extension cords, clean (washed) sleeping bags, canned food, ibuprofen and paracetamol. Please make sure that goods, especially the technical and electronic equipment, are functional and in as good a condition as possible.

The contact point of the UP Volunteering Centre in the courtyard of the Armoury (1 Biskupské Square) in the premises of the UP Student Club will be open for all donors until 8 April, on weekdays from 8 am to 2 pm.
