An aid convoy for Ukraine

March 26, 2022

Wilma Peters is used to getting musicians from A to B. Now, she’s organizing a very different kind of tour. She’s one of a group of volunteers trying to help Ukrainians suffering amid the ongoing war.


The minibuses cover 1600 kilometers in two days. They’re packed full of groceries, medication, medical supplies and other items sorely needed in a war zone. From Frankfurt an der Oder, the convoy drives across Poland to the Ukrainian border, where the donations quickly pass into eager and capable hands. It’s just as important for the convoy not to return empty. More and more refugees are headed west. Wilma and her volunteer helpers plan to bring as many back to Germany with them as they can carry. A report by Axel Rowohlt.
