Canada-Ukraine Foundation purchases, donates 156 power generators for Ukraine

MOSCOW. Feb 1 (Interfax) - The Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) has purchased 50 power generators for the Ukrainian Energy Ministry, 60 for hospitals and 46 for veterans' families, Ukrainian media reported, citing the foundation's press service.

Additional special large power generators were delivered to Ukraine last week at the request of the Energy Ministry to repair the damaged power system.

"Fifty special electric generators with light masts have been purchased to bolster the capabilities of repair teams in Ukraine," head of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation Victor Hetmanczuk said.

Additionally, 60 power generators have been purchased by the CUF for Ukrainian hospitals.

Forty-six power generators will be delivered to veterans' families via the Global Medic international humanitarian organization.

The purchase and delivery of generators is part of the efforts of the Humanitarian Relief Committee, a joint project of the CUF and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC).

From January 2022 to December 2022, the humanitarian association has provided assistance worth 22.9 million Canadian dollars. According to the CUF, more than 40,000 Canadians have made donor transfers during this time.
