Over the past days and weeks, we have all been witnessing the dramatic development in the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, following the Russion invasion. It comes as a surprise to most, that war would develop in Europe so quickly and without much warning. To stand up against the Russian agression is costly to us all, and as a business, Arkil will also be hit by rapidly increasing costs and uncertainty. But the greatest cost of all is borne by the Ukranian people, and they have dire need for the support and aid from the international community.
We have thus made the choice, on behalf of the 2,000 employees in the Arkil Group, to donate an amount equivalent to € 50 per employee. This will amount to €100,000, which will be donated as monetary aid for the benefit of Ukraine through the organizations UNICEF and International Red Cross. We hope the donation comes to the help of those, who need it the most, and are grateful that you, the employees, efforts makes it possible for Arkil to make this contribution to the cause.
