Dundalk Credit Union have teamed up with the Irish Red Cross to help raise funds for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
The group said:
"As the humanitarian crisis worsens across Ukraine, we watch in disbelief, a country torn apart by conflict.
"As a credit union, we are rooted in community and we felt compelled to support Ukraine and its people, a community uprooted by war, displacement, separation, and trauma.
"Current estimates and scenarios indicate that as many as five million people may be displaced as the situation evolves, with many more impacted, including those already in need and displaced in Eastern Ukraine at the onset of the ongoing escalation.
"Figures provided by authorities and National Societies point toward a total number of people potentially affected by the conflict at 18 million.
"In association with the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, Dundalk Credit Union is asking you to donate any amount you can, from as little as €2, to help the team at the Irish Red Cross do what they do best.
"100% of your donation will go directly to ensure that aid can be delivered to those most in need as the crisis deepens.
You can donate in any one of the following ways:
In person at any of our branches – a member of our team will assist you
Over the phone using a debit card – call 042-93 35489 & select option 2
