Welsh Water is sending 55,200 litres of bottled water to the country.

Access to water and sanitation are recognised by the United Nations as human rights, reflecting the fundamental nature of these basics in every person’s life, yet as the conflict continues to worsen, more detail is emerging about the crisis with reports of citizens melting snow to drink.

There have been requests from the Ukrainian government for donations of bottled water for drinking and personal hygiene purposes.

Pete Perry, Chief Executive of Welsh Water said: “The fact that so many people are without drinking water in Ukraine reflects the desperation of the situation.

“As a company, we will build on the support we already provide vulnerable people across the world, through our nominated charity WaterAid, by working with other water companies to provide some essential drinking water supplies to people in Ukraine.”
