“We are witnessing a terrible tragedy and a shocking nightmare. If we can find any hope in this situation, it is that there is massive support and funds for emergency aid from the world community. We choose to set aside at least DKK 15 million for direct emergency aid providing medical care and helping the refugees. We will direct these funds through organisations and local initiatives that are on the ground, know the needs and can provide the most effective help to the victims in Ukraine and refugees in the neighbouring countries”, says the Foundation’s Executive Director Kim Nøhr Skibsted.
The Foundation will follow the situation very closely and will be ready to fund more initiatives in the future if needed.
