Since waves of refugees cross the borders fleeing from Ukraine, Consortium Siska with partner organisations in Poland, Slovakia and Hungary started to actively participate in helping those displaced in the Ukrainian-Russian conflict. In addition to assisting our partner organisation and affiliates Food for Life, we supported keeping up the everyday distribution of food in Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. The Food For Life program is always ready to help in disaster situations feeding the masses who arrive from disaster areas.
To organize the catering operation, we are in contact with the relevant government and EU agencies and other charities and are preparing to start the food distribution when the events require also in Slovenia. Our partners have on request from the Embassy of the Republic of India, participated in the catering of those Indian citizens who are being evacuated from Ukraine to India through Hungary. In addition to getting a warm meal of traditional vegetarian preparation, they will also get a food parcel which will tide them over throughout the day.
Our Consortium has been hosting first war refugees from Ukraine in Slovenia since the start of this week when the first family of mother and two daughters arrived and we accommodated them at the house of one of our volunteers.
We are financially and logistically supporting Food for Life in Ukraine that is distributing hot meals. Our Food for All team is also travelling to Ukraine.
Food for Life in the Donetsk region have continued their food relief program, Food for Life, without stopping since the conflict began. In addition, other FFL centres in Ukraine are now sharing food, with thousands suffering from the Ukrainian crisis. 1,000 hot meals a day are being distributed to those in need in Dnipro, and 500 hot meals per day are being distributed in Kharkiv. Peter O'Grady, director of the UK’s Food for All program, is travelling with a small support team in a customized van with a commercial kitchen, extra-large pots, and an intense desire to cross the border into Ukraine to help the victims of the conflict with hot prasadam meals. Just minutes ago it was reported that they have arrived in Poland and will be cooking in the city of Przemysl, near the train station. He has received permission from the local government and will start feeding on 600-800 people daily.
Food for Life in Hungary is distributing free food (at six locations across the country in response to the Ukrainian crisis. Two locations are in Budapest, two locations at the Ukrainian border and two new locations are in the city of Debrecen near the Romanian border. Between 1,500 and 2,000 meals are being fed daily to refugees.
We hope for a peaceful resolution of the present situation as soon as possible.
“We offer our prayers for all persons who are victims of the evolving situation in Ukraine. We earnestly pray that no more innocent people may suffer and that peace will soon return to that region.”
Any support, either financial or other that you can offer is welcome.

Today we wake up with snow and it wasn’t surprising as how cold it is. It’s hard for those waiting to cross the border as they my be waiting 1-2 days so we don’t have right to complain. Situation is bad but local police, firefighters, army and everyone here is. . . . .
