A LIMERICK-based company has donated a specialist aid vehicle to help with ongoing humanitarian efforts in Eastern Ukraine.

Telecoms company Enet gifted the specialised Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 van to London charity The Scrubbery, who have been transporting medical supplies to the war torn country.

The donated van left Dublin on April 20, travelling across Europe before reaching Ukraine where it will provide Ukrainian medical staff with vital supplies including  wheelchairs and crutches.

The van was also filled with compressors, scrubs, face masks, and surgical equipment when it left Ireland.

The vehicle will be used as an ambulance to provide medical evacuations.
