Since 2020, the GPEU has been active in the field of Ukraine Aid. In 2021, approx. 65 square metres of relief supplies in the form of care beds, wheelchairs, walking aids, mattresses, bed linen, children's clothing and men's clothing were handed over to Ukraine-Hilfe Lobetal, a non-profit organisation that has been delivering relief supplies to Ukraine for more than 28 years.
