It is appalling to see the suffering and hardship which the Ukrainian people are enduring and for them to see their homes and buildings being destroyed daily must be so devastating but Harris Group support Ukraine.
But the worst of all I think is for the women and children being forced to flee and leave their husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles and nephews who are staying to defend their country which must be absolutely heartbreaking for all.
That is why, at Harris Group, we had to help. We have been acting as a drop off point for humanitarian aid for Ukraine in partnership with Green Speed Logistics , a Polish courier company, who have been working tirelessly in our warehouse these past few weeks, helped by fantastic volunteers. From the very first day that this began we have been astonished by the generosity of the Irish public and businesses, but not really surprised as we are only too aware of the kindness of the Irish in a time of need.
There are trucks departing our warehouses daily, full of essential aid, destined for Poland and Ukraine and I really do hope it makes a difference.
Yesterday, five Paddywagon Tours buses left here for Ukraine, packed to the roof with medical aid and other essentials. May I pay great tribute to the fantastic team of Paddy Wagon drivers, and our own Podge Curran, who have given their time and effort to such a deserving cause. We were so happy to witness the buses and drivers being blessed by Fr. Bryan OFM Cap. before their departure.
I would sincerely like to thank each and every one of you who has donated and who has given your time during this crisis and to help Harris Group support Ukraine. It could not have happened without you.
