In response to the situation in Ukraine, the ABBL organised a fundraising campaign among its team and doubled the amount collected from the staff. The final sum amounts to 8420 euros, which will go to the benefit of Médecins Sans Frontières and the Luxembourg Red Cross. Thank you to the whole team for this show of solidarity!
Médecins Sans Frontières has mobilised its Emergency Fund to intervene rapidly with victims of the conflict requiring medical care (i.e., injuries, treatment for chronic illnesses and serious diseases). Teams have been deployed to the borders and mobile units are being sent to respond to the crisis within Ukraine.
The humanitarian aid provided by the Luxembourg Red Cross is mainly in the form of supplies of essential goods to the victims of the conflict (medical equipment, food, drinking water, tents, hygiene products, clothes, blankets, etc.), especially to the countries bordering Ukraine such as Moldova.
