Rosti Group has initiated internal fund raising for refugees
The conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, and other countries have created the largest humanitarian crisis in decades. Thousands of families are fleeing for their lives and millions of people need humanitarian aid.
To help those in need the Rosti Group has initiated an internal fund raising program. During two weeks all Rosti employees are invited to raise money and participate in the program. Rosti Group will match the donations from the employees and donate the equivalent amount.
Donation for lifesaving assistance
There are many organizations that are doing their utmost to help refugees. Rosti Group has decided to make a donation to UNHCR - the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. UNHCR is on the ground, protecting refugees and providing lifesaving assistance such as shelter, food, water and medical care to refugees arriving in Europe.
“I believe that the ongoing refugee crisis doesn’t leave anyone unaffected. Millions of people are suffering leaving their homes and relatives to escape escalating violence and war. Forced to flee they are in search for safety and protection and depending upon other peoples’ help and humanity. At Rosti we want to help. We have started a fund raise within the company – for every penny raised by an employee, Rosti will donate the equivalent amount. With our donation we wish to help UNHCR save lives and protect the families who have been forced to flee their homes,” CEO Börje Vernet said.
