Our staff members are working from various locations in Ukraine including our previous areas of operation in Kiev, Donetsk and Sloviansk. We have set up new bases in Lviv, Chernivtsi and Uzghurod and we are working our way via Vinnytsya to Dinipro in the East. We have on-boarded 23 new partners through which we work in Zaporizhia, Kremenchug and Poltava and in different towns in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast.
Our new footprint gives us logistical staging hubs all the way from Lviv, Uzghurod, Chernivtsi and Odessa in the south-west of Ukraine to the main cities around the contact line in the east. The team has delivered food assistance in Chernitsvi and 230 tonnes of high-energy biscuits are on their way to Odessa.
In Mykolaiv, in the heavily contested south of Ukraine, we are supporting the children's hospital with urgently needed medical equipment and supplies. Together with our partner Crown Agents, a non-profit international development company in Ukraine, we are delivering more than 60,000 sets of first aid materials for distribution to hospitals and other primary care providers. These medical supplies are used to stop bleeding and treat injuries, including bandages and tourniquets. According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, they are among the most urgent items currently needed to treat the many injured.
In Kramatorsk, in the Donetsk region about 200 km north of Mariupol, we initially provided 9,000 litres of drinking water for about 1,300 families. The delivery is part of our aid around clean water and hygiene measures, which we coordinate together with other aid organisations in Ukraine. Where it is needed, we set up drinking water vending machines or distribute large drinking water canisters and water bottles, as in Kramatorsk.
Save the Children supports the Ukrainian authorities, among other things, in improving the country's online learning system so that children continue to have access to education. But the internet is poor when children are on the run or in disputed areas - they have no chance of getting any classes. That is why we are also distributing packages of toys and teaching materials to children who cannot leave their refuge and setting up digital learning centres in emergency shelters.
