Immediately the conflict started in Ukraine, Agnieska who is employed as a Surface Mount Operator, and Sarah, the company’s Surface Mount Team Leader, were moved to raise funds to help the millions of people who are facing a serious humanitarian crisis and are in need of urgent assistance. Through the kind and generous donations of colleagues a total of £370.00 was raised, which has been used to purchase food and medical supplies in Poland and sent to Ukraine.
As the conflict and associated devastation in Ukraine continues, Deirdre, SSG’s Manager for Client Services, organized a company-wide Easter raffle, raising a further £480, with prizes donated by colleagues.
Deirdre said: “We can’t ignore the absolutely devastating images we are all seeing in the news currently coming out of Ukraine. Whilst we can’t change this situation directly, we can in our own small way do something to support the countless numbers of women and children who through no fault of their own are finding themselves suddenly without a home and at the mercy of strangers.
“This money is going to be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) online for the Ukraine Appeal.”
DEC charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people. Donations are being used to do great things.
