Hungry Ukrainians Trapped By Russian Attacks Get Food Deliveries From Drivers Risking Their Lives

Source: Forbes

Drivers are navigating through the many dangers of war to bring food to Ukrainians pinned down by Russian bombardment in the country’s biggest cities.

MHP, the sixth-largest poultry exporter in the world and said to be the biggest food company still operating in Ukraine, is giving away as many as 330 tons of chicken every day to feed thousands of civilians in Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol under attack by Russian forces led by President Vladimir Putin. The courage comes in getting the food safely to destinations, bypassing blown-up bridges, maneuvering checkpoints, avoiding bombed-out terrain—and death. There’s no telling how many Ukrainians are living in desperate circumstances, without heat or sustenance, but reports of apartment buildings and hospitals ablaze in residential neighborhoods are frequent.

“It’s a humanitarian crisis,” said John Rich, chair of MHP, an Australian who’s running the company from safer ground in Slovenia. “People in bombed-out areas have no access to anything.”

Thousands of drivers in Ukraine are embarking on what Rich called suicide missions to bring vans full of chicken to people who’ve gone days without food. Many of the drivers are new employees who turned to MHP after the closing of other companies, including MHP’s competitors.
