It tears our hearts apart that so many innocent people must leave their homes overnight being forced to leave behind their beloved ones and all belongings. 💔 The powerlessness of not being able to end this war is hard to bear. But we are not powerless when it comes to caring for the refugees. And we will never stop helping within our circle of influence! Therefore:
- cosnova has donated € 1 million to support Ukrainian refugees. The amount was divided among the four organizations UNICEF, the German Red Cross, Be an Angel, and betterplace.org.
- cosnova employees, including our owners and including employees of Russian origin, are taking Ukrainian refugees in their homes and we will do our best to welcome and support them in starting their new life in Germany.
- Our Russian joint-venture distributor will donate all its Russian profits to social causes as long as the war lasts, because we do not accept that the Russian government finances this war with our taxes.
Update January 2024: Since the beginning of the war, we have donated a total of 4 million euros in this way to the organizations Be an Angel, Caritas, DRK, Federation of Jewish Communities and UNICEF.
A big thank you to everyone involved in supporting the victims, be it directly in Ukraine, at the borders or in the hosting countries. If we stand together, we can make an impact and make the world a better place, even in the darkest of times. 🌟
