In light of the escalating conflict and the challenges faced by the residents of Ukraine, Gordons Chemists are donating £10,000 to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to assist with their ongoing humanitarian aid efforts.
General Manager John Clark stated; “Like millions around the world, we have been horrified to see the situation in Ukraine unfold. The pictures on our televisions are a far cry from the city of Kyiv that I visited with my family only a few years ago. Our hearts go out to those affected in Ukraine and those… with family members there.”
“Since the start of the Russian invasion we have seen overwhelming generosity from the public donating clothes and toiletries. As a pharmacy chain we cannot directly send medicines and we have chosen a monetary pledge to ensure the benefits are directed where needed, as quickly as possible.”
“We hope that this donation will help ICRC to provide the medicines and assistance to those Ukrainians most affected by these tragic events.”
A representative of the ICRC said “the ICRC is committed to assisting and protecting people in Ukraine and thanks Gordons Chemists for supporting our work”.
