"We continue to implement a large humanitarian project on providing water supply and sanitation in eastern Ukraine. Thanks to this project, we want about 3.5 million people living in the conflict-affected area to have proper sanitation conditions and water. The same applies to schools along the contact line. Many educational institutions were damaged in attacks. Children also need psychological and social support," she said.
