In conjunction with a Polish based organisation, Help Ukraine, Guernsey Post is offering free postage for humanitarian aid packages sent to Ukraine.
Anyone interested in sending parcels should deliver them to the Guernsey Post's main retail counter at Postal Headquarters. The parcels will be despatched by Guernsey Post to a warehouse in Poland where arrangements have been made for onward transportation to Ukraine.
Help Ukraine have advised that many of the usual supply chains are now unavailable. But the organisation has identified an urgent need for medicines, food rations, blankets, and other humanitarian assistance.
Further advice is available at www.helpukraine.center.en
Help Ukraine advise that Packing must withstand all stages of handling without breaking. It must be clearly labelled with full details of content and the consignee, and normal customs form requirements will need to be completed. The parcels should be clearly marked 'HELP UKRAINE' and addressed to: -
Rampa Brzeska 63,
Anyone wishing to send letters or parcels directly to friends and relatives in Ukraine can also do so free of charge by posting at the Envoy House counter but delays are almost certain given the current circumstances.
