EUAM staff members raise €2,000 for displaced older citizens

September 10, 2019

On Sunday 1 September, 12 EUAM staff members took part in the annual ‘Velo100’ bike race, cycling 100km around Kyiv in order to raise funds for the ‘Crisis Centre for Elderly People’, a shelter on the outskirts of Kyiv that provides accommodation for over 30 homeless older citizens, most of whom have been displaced by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. A small team of volunteers just about manages to keep the shelter operating, but conditions are poor. The €2,000 that we have now raised will be used to buy food, clothes, medicine, and to help with premises repairs.
