Stand With Ukraine
Cohesion in action - you can help too!
From March 04 to 06, the team of SENS starts a collection campaign of material goods for refugees from Ukraine at three European locations. From Würzburg, Seville (Spain) as well as Lecce (Italy) the donations will be brought directly to the crisis regions by special transport. SENS works closely with the organization Refugee4Refugees, which ensures that the donations are distributed where they are needed.
At the Würzburg site, donations can be dropped off Friday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Carl-Zeiss-Str. 4. The collection point is organized in a covid-compliant manner by means of a drive-in; it is not necessary to get out of the vehicle when dropping off items.
SENSineers can count on its partnership with the Würzburg Kickers, with whom the company is active in the area of sustainability. The Kickers have also set up a collection point at the main entrance to the Flyeralarm Arena on the Dallenberg. Donations can be dropped off there on Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which will then be picked up by the SENS transporter and handed over to the aid organization.
In particular, the following goods are needed:
- First aid kits
- Covid tests
- Personal hygiene products (wet wipes, soap, toothpaste, diapers, etc.)
- Warm clothing for adults and children (jackets, sweaters, hats, socks, underwear, etc.)
- SIM cards
- Power banks
- Sleeping bags
- Hand warmer
- Bed linen
- Durable food
- Baby food
- Water supplies
- Disposable tableware
Financial donations are requested directly to the organization's donation account: https://chuffed.org/project/r4r-support-our-emergency-relief-operations
The staff of SENS and the Würzburger Kickers would like to thank in advance for any support from the local community.
Update 10 March:
We say THANK YOU to the local population as well as to all the volunteers who supported us with the donation campaign for Ukraine! SENS has collected relief supplies at three European locations over the past few days.
Thanks to your active solidarity, a 40-tonne truck with almost 700 boxes full of clothes, blankets, medicine, food and much more set off for Ukraine on 8 March. The relief goods collected by SENS and the Würzburger Kickers will now be taken to Siret on the Romanian-Ukrainian border. In this way, the collected goods reach where they are most urgently needed.
However, the SENS collection campaign was not only carried out in Würzburg, but also by the SENSineers in Spain and Italy thanks to a transnational teamwork. The material goods collected there are brought to Slovakia and distributed from there.
