UMH with Ukraine: Responsible Collaboration

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) is firmly committed to lending its support behind the NGOs and humanitarian agencies that are involved in providing refuge, water, food, medicine, and aid for the Ukrainian people. To help with this, and due to numerous requests by the university community, the Vice Rectorate for International Relations has compiled information about several responsible methods to help these entities.

With this objective in mind, and based on information provided by the Valencian Coordinator of NGOs (CVONGD) and by entities specializing in humanitarian action, the Area of Development Cooperation and Volunteerism at the UMH has compiled useful information in the following link to help guide people interested in the various actions and forms to collaborate:

Collection points at the UMH (March 3 & 4)

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) is setting up two collection points for medicine, sanitary materials, and essential products to be given to the Ukrainian people.
