RCD Espanyol and the ‘És per tu’ Association have started a trip to Radymno (Poland), a city bordering Ukraine, for humanitarian purposes this Monday. The blue and white club and the association have sent a bus loaded with food, medicine, essential products and sports equipment. Once there, it will welcome children and Ukrainian families and bring them to the destination indicated by the NGO itself.
“És per tu” is a non-profit association that bases its activity on sheltering children living in radiation-contaminated areas in Chernobyl, Ukraine. The improvement of their health is what pushes to promote receptions, which are always carried out in the summer or Christmas periods.
The club’s official coach left this Monday at 6 am from Montcada i Reixac. The first stop will be in the evening, in Stuttgart, and from there it will be on the way to Radymno, after a short break in Krakow.
The coach will spend a whole day in Radymno, where it will receive fifty people. In this way, RCD Espanyol collaborates in the humanitarian action promoted by ‘És per tu’.
“We are happy to be able to help. This situation is very complex. An invasion in the 21st century and using the civilian population in this way is unacceptable. We think that we all have to mobilize and this is a small initiative, a grain of sand within of the complexity of the moment”, explained José María Durán, minutes before the bus left.
“Thanks to them we can go look for our children, they are waiting for us, they have been able to reach the border with Poland. They are children who previously came with us in the temporary reception project. Most of them came at Christmas. We hope that everything goes well and to be here all together very soon”, said Rosa Martín, president of the association.
