Kiev, 22 June 2023 A communication from the team of the National Scientific Agricultural Library of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences of Ukraine (NSAAS) in response to a donation from the association FriedensBrot e.V. in October 2022 (https://friedensbrot.eu/en/forum-friedensbrot-2022-agriculture-in-times-of-war-and-crises/):
It is extremely important and pleasant not to be alone in times of challenges related to the war against Ukraine unleashed by Russia, but to feel support, especially real support from foreign colleagues.
Today, we would like to express our gratitude to the entire team of the PeaceBread Association for their attention and financial support to the National Scientific Agricultural Library of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences of Ukraine (NSAAS).
Despite all this, we are working to maintain the information front, continue to offer our services to users and have switched most of our production processes to online communication. Therefore, the financial support of the Foundation, whose activities are aimed at promoting peace and agriculture, was intended for the purchase of modern computer equipment that will be used in the production processes, including the further formation of an electronic resource and the processing of digitised documents, especially unique collections that occupy an important place in the library’s more than one million titles in 32 languages from 59 countries.
We thank you. We believe in a peaceful future and the preservation of Ukrainian-German economic and friendship relations.
