Die president van die Europese Kommissie, Ursula von der Leyen, en die presidentsvrou van Oekraïne, Olena Zelenska, het die oorhandigingseremonie van die EU-solidariteitsveldtog "Skoolbusse vir Oekraïne" bygewoon. Meer as 370 skoolbusse is aan Oekraïense gemeenskappe afgelewer. Hierdie solidariteitsveldtog is in November 2022 deur Kommissiepresident Ursula von der Leyen en Eerste Dame van Oekraïne Olena Zelenska van stapel gestuur.

Die skoolbusse is amptelik aan verteenwoordigers van plaaslike owerhede van die Kiëf-, Sumy-, Mykolaiv-, Dnipropetrovsk-, Lviv- en Chernihiv-streke oorhandig.

Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, said: “This cruel war has robbed thousands of Ukrainian children of their innocence and childhood. But it will not deprive them of the bright and happy future they deserve. That’s why I am happy that we can help bringing Ukrainian children safely to school. The donation of more than 370 school buses by the Commission and member states demonstrates our joint commitment to the next generations of Ukrainians.”

“Last year, during a visit to the European Parliament, I discussed this with European Commission President  Ursula von der Leyen. And now Ukrainian communities are receiving more than 370 buses. This is a great display of solidarity. This is a path towards our children’s future –  theirs and the entire country’s, in the midst of war. This is what school buses mean, this is why they are important,” First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska said.

In die gees van solidariteit en toewyding om Oekraïne te ondersteun, het die Europese Kommissie 100 skoolbusse, ter waarde van ongeveer € 14 miljoen, gekoop. Daarbenewens het openbare en private entiteite in EU-lidlande 271 skoolbusse geskenk via die EU-burgerbeskermingsmeganisme, wat deur die Europese Kommissie bestuur word.

In November 2022 het Kommissiepresident Ursula von der Leyen en Eerste Dame van Oekraïne, Olena Zelenska, die veldtog "Skoolbusse vir Oekraïne" geloods - 'n nuwe EU-solidariteitsveldtog om Oekraïne te ondersteun en Oekraïense kinders veilig terug te kry na hul skole. Die Kommissie het 'n beroep op openbare en private entiteite in die EU en verder gedoen om kragte saam te snoer en solidariteit te toon deur busse te skenk wat noodsaaklik is om Oekraïense kinders veilig terug te bring na hul skole.

The European Commission’s funding of €14m made it possible to purchase, deliver and distribute 100 school buses, with the support of Solidarity Fund Poland (SFPL). Authorities, cities, regions, and transport organisations from 11 EU Member States (Austria, Czechia, Germany, Estonia, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden) donated 271 school buses, which reached Ukraine through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.

In the 2022 State of the Union speech, President von der Leyen announced a €100m package to support the rehabilitation of Ukrainian schools. €66m of that funding was disbursed directly to Ukraine’s budget in 2022 and the rest of the funding was implemented by the Commission’s humanitarian partners on the ground. In addition, Commission President von der Leyen launched two initiatives worth €12m that support childcare reform and trauma-informed care for children in Ukraine.
