The entire Sunvil team are deeply saddened and shocked by the devastating situation in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with those suffering and with the millions of people who have found themselves refugees in the fight for the safety of themselves and their families. We have answered our personal calls to help and have put together a few ideas on how we can provide support and care in their hours of need.
Donating to Refugee Support Europe: Aid with dignity
Being a refugee strips you of all dignity. Refugee Support Europe helps to restore it by providing much-needed material support; with every approach measured by how it can in some way restore or enhance the dignity of the people they help.
The conflict in Ukraine has resulted in the fastest-growing refugee crisis since World War II. Sunvil have committed to donating £10 from each new booking to Refugee Support Europe to aid their humanitarian work in the region.
Donating to a local appeal
We have donated essential items including first aid equipment and medical supplies, nappies, formula, sanitary products, sleeping bags, blankets, torches and warm clothes to a local collection. The destination of the goods is the town of Lviv in Ukraine. Whilst small in number, we know that these goods are much-needed and will provide some 'light' in a time of need.
Some of our staff have chosen to book an Airbnb stay in the Ukraine as a way of sending much needed funds to those on the front line.
