War against Ukraine

Barleben in Germany raises 8,500 euros for their Ukrainian partner Shyroke municipality
As part of our coverage of the local and regional dimension of Russia’s war in Ukraine, CEMR is highlighting the help given by European municipalities and regions to their Ukrainian peers. We hope these stories inspire other local and regional governments to heighten their efforts to support Ukraine.

According to the Mayor of Barleben, Frank Nase, the goal of the charity campaign was to send a signal of solidarity to the people of Shyroke in Ukraine. This was truly a community driven action. Many citizens as well as local business, pharmacies, medical practices, bakeries donated money or provided other forms of in-kind support for the benefit of their Ukrainian partner. With 1,000 euros, the Lions Club Börde provided the largest single donation that the association has made this year.

The mayor of Shyroke, Denis Korotenko, thanked Barleben for all the support and for their sincerity and care.

The partnership between Barleben and Shyroke started in 2018 under Peer-to-Peer initiative with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme.
