Today, thoughts of everyone in Poland go out to Ukraine – the country where many of our friends come from. In order to respond to the current situation, the Think About the Future Foundation in cooperation with local entrepreneurs from Nowy Sącz organized humanitarian transport with long-term food and hygiene articles to Ukraine. The first convoy of four trucks with aid for Ukraine has already reached Lviv. FAKRO provided vehicles from its fleet free of charge to ensure efficient organisation of transport. FAKRO drivers have made it their task to carry out this risky transport in the current situation. In addition to the Think About the Future Foundation and FAKRO, such companies as Konspol, Gosdrob, Szubryt, Goldrop, Cechini, Maspex Group, Owoc Łącki and Eurocash involved in the action. The value of the provided aid is currently PLN 500,000.00.
“FAKRO made available its logistics centres in Nowy Sącz and Lviv. The latter one is at the disposal of Caritas Lviv, while employees of FAKRO Lviv were delegated to assist with the unloading and redistribution of humanitarian aid in Ukraine. The facility can be used free of charge by other charities helping Ukraine. After the return of the truck convoy to Poland, the Foundation plans further shipments of humanitarian aid goods. We accept only full pallets of a single product for transport due to the requirements of customs clearance. We encourage entrepreneurs to participate in further transports. We are impressed by the courage of Ukrainian soldiers and the entire society of Ukraine. We all feel united with Ukrainians suffering from the cruelty of war and we find it as a natural reflex to help them,” commented by Bożena Damasiewicz, President of the Think About the Future Foundation.
