It was also decided to donate 25,000 Euros to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency."
Eduardo Unzu, Chairman of the Board of Azkoyen comments:
"The war in Ukraine has shocked and saddened us all. We want to show our support to the Ukrainian people and help reduce the humanitarian impact of the crisis. The situation is visibly deteriorating and becoming more and more unclear. Further developments are hardly predictable. As in any humanitarian crisis, assistance is important and can make a difference in the lives of people affected by the conflict. Azkoyen has therefore decided to donate 25,000 Euros to the UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency. The money will be used for protection and humanitarian aid in Ukraine and neighboring countries, including the distribution of emergency aid, basic food, and clothing. With our donation, we join the thousands of gestures of solidarity to help those affected by the war. I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who is helping to provide relief from this suffering".
