Uzin Utz donates to aid organisations to support people in Ukraine
The globally active group of companies, Uzin Utz, donates 120,000 euros to humanitarian organisations to support the people in the Ukrainian war zone. The Ulm-based full-range supplier of flooring systems is handing over the funds to several international initiatives that are providing direct aid in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
The situation in Ukraine has escalated dramatically, so the family-owned company Uzin Utz has decided to help the needy and refugees in Ukraine and neighbouring countries quickly and unbureaucratically. Some Uzin Utz companies in neighbouring countries have already set relief supplies on their way. "We are very shocked by the news from the war zone. It is a matter of concern for us to act quickly now and provide aid directly where it is needed," Philipp Utz, member of the board of Uzin Utz, explains.
Donations to various international institutions
"We have decided to give the donation amount to various institutions so that the help will benefit as many people in need as possible", Philipp Utz says. Part of the money will go to the German Red Cross, which provides emergency humanitarian aid to the population in Ukraine as well as to people fleeing. The non-profit organisation Save the Children works to ensure the safety of children who have fled. To this end, the organisation has set up five reception centres in northern Romania. Another part of the donation goes to the Gustav-Adolf-Werk based in Leipzig, with which Uzin Utz follows a recommendation of the Rotary Club of Ulm. It helps Protestant congregations in the Ukraine to provide food for people who have stayed and refugees who have passed through. It also supports cross-denominational congregations in Poland, Slovakia and Hungary in providing for arriving refugees. "With our donation, we want to carry on the worldwide idea of solidarity and support the people affected," Philipp Utz appeals to all those willing to donate. In addition, the employees of Uzin Utz are also asked for their help. They can submit their ideas and suggestions for further aid campaigns to the board of the family-owned company, because a large part of the donation amount will be used for further measures.
The organisations mentioned explain their commitment in detail on their websites and call for donations:
