MERCADONA, Spain's largest grocery chain, has announced a €1.5 million donation to Ukraine refugees in Spain and Portugal to assist them in their hour of need.
The corporation stated that it wanted to express its sympathy and support for Ukrainians affected by the conflict. It claims it will do it in the only manner it knows how: by assisting with the expense of necessities.
Refugees who arrive in the nation between June and December will be given €50 gift cards redeemed at any Mercadona store. In the process, the firm intends to assist over 5,000 people.
The cards will be distributed through official receiving centres for Ukrainian refugees arriving in Spain or Portugal.
However, the corporation is not only distributing gift cards that can be redeemed in its stores, but it is also supplying basic requirements to Reception, Attention, and Referral Centres (CREADE) for Ukrainian immigrants. These are situated across Spain, with the degree and type of assistance offered depending on the requirements of the specific centre.
Mercadona is just one of several businesses on the Peninsula that have come out in favour of Ukrainian migrants. Their gift goes a long way toward assisting those who arrive in Spain and Portugal to get started.
