Description : An International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) team has led a convoy of buses and private cars carrying more than 1,000 people to Zaporizhzhia. The civilians transported in the humanitarian convoy had fled Mariupol on their own.
"We walked, decided to go with the child. And our family let us go with tears in their eyes, because this is a long journey and it is definitely dangerous,” said Nykol who fled Mariupol.
The convoy that the ICRC led left Berdiansk on Tuesday April 5th, 2022 and reached Zaporizhzhia on Wednesday 6th. The ICRC team had tried over the course of five days and four nights to reach Mariupol, and came within 20 kilometres of the city, but security conditions on the ground made it impossible to enter.
“As you can see, we have made it to Zaporizhzhia with seven other buses and more than 500 civilians that were coming out of Mariupol, leading a safe passage out to Zaporizhzhia. We hope that we'll be back and continue to provide the safe passage to the civilians. And we have also observed acute humanitarian needs that we hope to respond as a neutral humanitarian intermediary and continue to help civilians,” said Umar Naseem Khan, head of ICRC’s sub delegation in Dnipro. Umar Naseem Khan refers to more than 500 civilians, but the number is more than 1,000.
The ICRC remains ready to facilitate the safe passage of civilians from Mariupol and other cities, provided that the parties to the conflict ensure the necessary security guarantees and conditions.

The ICRC has been working in Ukraine since 2014, supporting people affected by conflict. Since the recent escalation of the crisis, we have brought over 700 tons of medical supplies, food and relief items into the country to respond to skyrocketing humanitarian needs. We will continue to scale up our work and now have teams in 10 locations across the country.
