BURBERRY EXPANDS SUPPORT FOR RELIEF EFFORTS IN UKRAINE
Burberry is committing further support to the relief efforts in Ukraine.
Following our initial donation to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, we will provide additional funding to the organisation, enabling the distribution of more food, hygiene products, warm clothes and aid to meet urgent and immediate needs.
In response to the escalating refugee crisis, we will also donate to Save the Children and UNICEF in support of their Ukraine humanitarian appeals. Both organisations are working to provide essential services including health, protection, education, water and sanitation to millions of children and their families who have crossed into neighbouring countries for safety.
In addition to providing financial aid, we are exploring how we can leverage our global supply chain to support displaced communities, including through the provision of food, shelter and warmth.
Gerry Murphy, Chair of Burberry said: "We are increasing our support for charities and aid agencies providing much needed food, shelter and essential services to the millions of children and families impacted by the conflict in Ukraine. We will continue to look for ways we can help alleviate the suffering of communities caught in this appalling crisis."
