Since the beginning of the hostilities in Ukraine, Kiwanis clubs in Europe, together with the Kiwanis Children’s Fund in Europe, have been mobilizing to help refugees, mainly through its clubs based in Romania and Slovakia. Thanks to the generous donations of European Kiwanians, but also American, Japanese, Malaysian, it has been possible to send hundreds of pallets filled with food, hygiene products, food and baby care items – just to name a few.
To continue to help those who need it most, any donation is welcome:

Another 2 fully loaded semi-trailers loaded with some 40 tons of various relief goods such as pasta, flour, milk, hygiene items… left Luxembourg for Romania, where our friends and partners at Marelbo (shoe factory) are temporarily storing the products to take them to where Ukrainian refugees need them most. And as a special treat for the children, the load included 2 pallets of toys and 1 pallet of chocolate. A very special team was present at the departure of these semi-trailers: Ukrainian Consul in Luxembourg Mr Radoux, Past KI President Daniel Vigneron, the owner of the shopping centre in Walferdange (which KCF Europe uses as a warehouse) Mr. Elvinger, Bernard Altmann and our great truck drivers!
Thanks to the donations of Kiwanians and the logistics set up by Kiwanis Children’s Fund in Europe, 63 pallets containing pasta, oil, milk, rice, tomato pulp but also diapers, washing powder, soap and milk for babies were shipped to Romania where Kiwanians, together with friends of Kiwanis, join efforts to help families in Ukraine.
More than a million Euro in donations have been received!
