Donation campaign raises 5000 euros
The war in Ukraine has caused immeasurable pain and suffering to the country and its people. Millions of Ukrainians have fled their homes fearing for their lives, traveling to neighboring countries such as Poland. Kräuter Mix received an appeal for help from a long-standing raw materials supplier in the area. He has been involved in refugee aid since the outbreak of the war and reported stories of this human tragedy on the Polish-Ukrainian border.
The village of Wielkie, where Kräuter Mix has a site, is situated a hundred kilometers from the border. Our Polish business partner had rapidly set up a small refugee shelter in the village for up to eight people. Since the beginning of March, traumatized women and children are being sheltered here. They have had to leave their possessions behind, while any money they do have has hugely devalued since the beginning of the war.
Kräuter Mix wanted to help those in the refugee shelter, making sure they are safe and equipped with the basic necessities, not least food, toiletries and clothing. As such, we started a donation campaign with our employees. Within just two weeks, the company had collected 2500 euros thanks to everyone’s generosity, a sum Kräuter Mix later doubled before passing it on to the Mix for Kids charity.
The non-profit organization was founded by Kräuter Mix in 2018 and, through a range of social projects, supports children and teenagers in difficult life situations. Kräuter Mix is the organization’s largest sponsor. The full amount of 5000 euros donated by Kräuter Mix and its employees went to helping mothers and their children in the refugee shelter.
