It has been a year since the brutal Russian invasion on Ukraine on 24 February 2022. Since the first days of the war, sympathising with Ukraine, we have been helping our Ukrainian employees, their families, and Ukrainian emigrants.
In 2022 the volunteering staff of the Capital Group companies were supporting hundreds of people, by way of providing financial and in-kind aid or accommodation. We were also spreading ‘hope’ by ensuring the place of work, or possibility to bring up and educate children far from the atrocities of war.
The support still continues, but we are glad to see that after the difficult beginning our Ukrainian Friends are becoming independent: the earn money, learn Polish, are able to arrange their affairs with authorities or at the doctor, they have the opportunity to take care of their loved ones. At the moment, we are supporting 79 people, out of which 39 work at the Capital Group companies in Poland.
At the same time, with due diligence and applying security measures, we have been running our operations in the Ukrainian companies, which is very important for our Ukrainian staff, obtaining a bit of normality and the feeling that they may build their home country.
