Three buses left Ukraine, loaded with 177 people who stopped in Nîmes, at the Salle Paloma, to rest. They will leave in the evening for Spain.
Nîmes metropolis, the Red Cross and the State services mobilized on Wednesday evening to welcome this Thursday morning, at 6 a.m., three buses transporting Ukrainian refugees going to Spain. A rest stop has been improvised in the Paloma contemporary music room so that travellers, mainly women, children and the elderly, can find refuge for a few hours.
The Ukrainians were able to benefit from beds, snacks, the possibility of taking a shower, while the Océan company and the Humanîmes association brought toys for the children. The Agglo, through its president Franck Proust, wanted to thank the actors who mobilized during the night but also the seven Spanish volunteers who took on their time and their personal money to charter these three buses and put shelter these Ukrainians fleeing the war.
