Rehabilitation and agricultural knowledge transfer for Ukrainain veterans in the Netherlands:

In March, the group of Ukrainian veterans visited DutchFlora. The visit was organized by the Netherlands For Ukraine Foundation and The Leeuw Kyiv Foundation with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine.

In March, International Women’s Day is celebrated in Ukraine, and the cut flowers from the Netherlands are usually in high demand in Ukraine. At the same time, cooperation between the Netherlands and Ukraine in the floricultural sector is not limited to cut flowers; it also includes the supply of a wide range of planting materials, technologies, and equipment for open field and greenhouse production.

The veterans and their family members have been introduced to the entire growing process of the tulips, from storing, planting and up to the sorting and packaging for further dispatch.

The representatives of DutchFlora provided answers to the numerous questions from the veterans about the floral business in the Netherlands and international cooperation.

Two years ago many veterans used to have ordinary civilian jobs, then, after full scale invasion in Ukraine, they learned how to be soldiers and got their military specializations. They have open minds and learn very fast. All participants of the study tour admitted that it was a very useful visit and they actively joined the planning of the further study tours within to project.

In case you would like to take part in the project and invite the veterans to you farm or facility, please contact Kateryna Volianska [email protected].
