AS DelfinGroup donates 100 000 euros to support Ukraine and calls for other companies to help the war victims
By donating EUR 100 00 AS DelfinGroup has decided to actively support Ukrainian people who have suffered in the war. The company will donate money to help two initiatives in support of Ukraine: 70 000 euros will go to Entrepreneurs for Peace, a movement initiated by technology companies, while 30 000 euros are meant for the initiative called For People of Ukraine, facilitated by Ziedot.lv.
Chairman of the Management Board of AS DelfinGroup Didzis Ādmīdiņš: “Starting a war is a criminal act which creates suffering and inequality. There’s no justification for that. Unfortunately, our decision cannot stop the war, but it is within our power to mitigate the human suffering and help the victims of this war. The sooner our help reaches Ukrainian people, the more lives we might be able to save. Therefore, we urge other Latvian companies to take an active part and help Ukrainian civilians, soldiers and volunteers who are currently risking their lives for their country. Today the whole civilized world stands by Ukraine in their fight for their freedom. We must not be indecisive and stay on sidelines. We must be active and help!”
In support of Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression, Latvian technology entrepreneurs have established a movement Entrepreneurs for Peace and have launched a donation campaign in order to raise 5 million euros in the next few days to aid Ukraine. This initiative is a combined effort with Ministry of Defence, Ukrainian Embassy in Latvia, Latvian NGOs and international humanitarian aid organizations, platform Ziedot.lv and many others, and it creates a comprehensive and coordinated support network to help Ukrainian citizens suffering in the war.
Ieva Driksna, representative of Entrepreneurs for Peace: " We are truly glad to see AS DelfinGroup joining the movement of entrepreneurs with their donation which is crucial for us to be able to act in a swift and targeted manner when providing aid wherever it's needed the most."
