The German company Busch Vacuum Solutions recently made a 100,000-euro ($109,220) donation to the German Red Cross for emergency aid to Ukraine.
Busch has also stopped all deliveries of products to Russia until further notice.
The German, Ukrainian, and Polish Red Cross organizations have set up a supply line to enable the rapid delivery of relief supplies to Ukraine. Among other items, hygiene packages, first aid kits, power banks, and thousands of cots, sleeping mats, and blankets will be delivered first to Poland then to Ukraine. The German Red Cross is also preparing a field hospital to support the Ukrainian Red Cross with first aid, wound care, and evacuations.
“We have decided to give 100,000 euros to the German Red Cross as humanitarian aid for Ukraine,” Busch co-owner Kaya Busch said in a company press release. “The fast and well-organized supply of the civilian population has top priority in this terrible emergency situation. We believe that the German Red Cross can achieve the most for the people, due to its good equipment and proximity of the conflict.”
Busch has supported the work of the German Red Cross for many years, the press release said. The company also supports its Ukrainian employees who work for Busch in the Czech Republic, accommodating family members who have fled, providing financial assistance, and collecting urgently needed donations in kind, according to the press release.
The family-owned Busch Vacuum Solutions, headquartered in Maulburg, Germany, produces vacuum pumps, vacuum systems, blowers, and compressors. It has plants in the U.S., the Czech Republic, Switzerland, U.K., and South Korea.
