The KWH Group and our four divisions Mirka, KWH Logistics, KWH Freeze and Prevex donate a total of € 25,000 to support various relief efforts in war-torn Ukraine. Most go to the Finnish Red Cross (FRK). Support is also given to Nada Nord ra, which arranges bus transports from Poland to Pietarsaari, Finland for women and children fleeing Ukraine.
We chose to mainly support FRK because they are reliable and have extensive experience in humanitarian work. FRK supports the work of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Ukraine and the surrounding areas. The donations go directly to the relief work. So far, the Red Cross has, among other things, distributed food and hygiene packaging to civilians in Ukraine, improved water distribution, provided first aid training and evacuated people.
