Co-operatives join hands with the Finnish Red Cross to help
S Group has started raising funds with the Finnish Red Cross. The funds raised will be used to help Ukraine through the Finnish Red Cross’s Disaster Relief Fund.
The desire to help is shared by all S Group employees in Finland. Regional co-operatives and S Bank have therefore decided to donate EUR 10 for each member of their personnel to the Finnish Red Cross’s Disaster Relief Fund.
We invite our co-op members to take part and donate to the fund. We communicate this to our co-op members through the S-mobiili mobile app and direct emails.
The Red Cross will use the collected funds to help people fulfil their basic needs. The Red Cross is delivering food, water, shelter and medical assistance to the conflict area. At this stage of the conflict, humanitarian organisations have requested financial support specifically, because coordinating relief efforts in the area jointly is easier than storing and delivering material donations to the area.
