Welcome to the new EU Clusters Support Ukraine Forum established by the ECCP. The Forum has been created to enhance the ability of European industry to contribute to the delivery of humanitarian aid for Ukraine and to support Ukrainian refugees in Member State countries. In this Forum you can share information, register your offers of assistance, propose collaborations and request assistance in order to facilitate procurement and delivery of urgent humanitarian requirements. These include food, hygiene products, medicines; as well as personal equipment to ensure survivability in war and refugee conditions, including shelters, clothing, bedding and accommodation.
To help coordinate how you can provide help or express how you need help, the ECCP has created the EU Clusters Support Ukraine discussion group. In this discussion group you can share information, collaborate and discuss ways which you can offer assistance, propose collaborations and request assistance in order to facilitate procurement and delivery of urgent humanitarian requirements. You can join the EU Clusters Support Ukraine discussion group here.
