Since February 24, the Volunteer Headquarters has been operating on the basis of Lviv Polytechnic National University. It was formed by representatives of students, postgraduate students and teaching staff on the first day of the war.
Every day more and more people come to the rescue. Volunteers weave nets, collect humanitarian supplies for the front, help displaced people who have found shelter in the University, sew sleeping bags and unloading items, provide fighters with power banks (made by friends of volunteers), flashlights and small equipment. And this is not a complete list of activities.
14,000 square meters of camouflage nets were woven by Polytechnic volunteers during the first two months of the war. The Student Headquarters in Lviv and the region organized about 70 centers for weaving camouflage nets, which involve students, teachers and other staff of the University. Thousands of square meters have already been woven by joint efforts, two of which are the largest - a record size of 21 × 21 meters for aircrafts.
In addition, volunteers have already sewn 100 sleeping bags for the soldiers (money raised together), first aid kits and other handy items for military unloading.
From the second week of the war, the Headquarters began to receive requests from the front line, first for nets, then for medical supplies and technical devices. Therefore, in one of the premises of Lviv Polytechnic, a humanitarian aid headquarters was set up. The humanitarian aid was delivered by our students from Poland on their own.
The geography of medical care for the military includes: Pushcha-Vodytsia, Kharkiv, Kyiv, Korosten, Popasna, Sloviansk, Bucha, Kherson region, Shostka, Mykolaiv, Berdiansk, Vasylkiv and that’s not the whole list.
When most of the work processes were arranged, and some became automatic, volunteers started looking for a car for one of the military units in Kremenchuk. They managed to raise funds and bring a jeep, which was repaired and painted for combat operations as well as delivered to the military.
Polytechnic students are actively volunteering in their hometowns and villages outside the Lviv region: they weave camouflage nets, help displaced persons, work with children, help with humanitarian aid, assist the Red Cross Rescue Service, and prepare canned meat and pastries for the military at the front.
We express our gratitude to everyone who joins to help!
Together we are strong!
Everything will be Ukraine!
