Uber, in partnership with the UN, assists Ukraine

Uber has built a "private-label" version of its delivery platform to help the United Nations deliver food and water supplies to war-torn areas of Ukraine.
The tech firm is working with the UN's World Food Programme (WFP).

It's difficult for large delivery trucks to access some parts of Ukraine because of structural damage and the threat of attack. Uber's platform enables the WFP to co-ordinate a fleet of smaller vehicles.

Usually, businesses pay Uber a commission per delivery for the service, but the WFP is not being charged.

The scheme is being trialled in the central city of Dnipro. The hope is that it will be rolled out later across four other cities: Lviv, Vinnytsia, Kyiv and Chernivtsi.
