Biosphere Corporation launches international export campaign “Support Ukrainians” in Romania
Biosphere Corporation, with the support of the Embassy of Ukraine in Romania and Elgeka-Ferfelis Romania, launches an international charity campaign “Support Ukrainians” in Romania. A press conference on the occasion of the launch of the initiative was held in Bucharest on September 29, 2022.
The “Support Ukrainians” campaign is an initiative of Biosphere Corporation, Ukraine’s largest manufacturer and distributor of household goods and hygiene products, with leading European retailers and distributors.
The goal of the project is to help Ukrainian children affected by Russia’s war in Ukraine as well as to support the Ukrainian economy and producers in these challenging times.
Charity is an important part of the campaign. To this end, Biosphere Corporation, gladly supported by the partner Elgeka-Ferfelis Romania, will cooperate with UNICEF Ukraine and donate 30 Bani made from each sold item to help Ukrainian children.
The campaign has already been launched in Croatia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia with great success. As of mid-September 2022, the collected donations have exceeded 25 000 euros and helped Ukrainian children.
Under the campaign, there will be arranged special shelves with Ukrainian products of Biosphere Corporation in stores of major European retailers to attract customers to goods made in Ukraine. By purchasing goods of TMs Vortex, Romanian customers will not only enjoy high-quality products, but will also help Ukrainian children.
Commenting on the launch of the campaign, the CEO of Biosphere Corporation noted that the idea of the project arose in the first days of Russia’s war in Ukraine. “For Biosphere Corporation, it is important not only to boost our export in order to support production in Ukraine, but also to lead a social mission with a meaningful impact. We want to donate part of our profits to help Ukrainian children. I’m happy that the campaign receives massively positive feedback from European buyers and altogether, we help Ukrainian children.”
«Supporting Ukrainians, especially children, in such difficult times for Ukraine is very important. We are grateful to Biosphere Corporation for such an initiative and are happy to support it. We are also very pleased that Romanian distributors and retail chains join the campaign. This is one more Romania’s display of solidarity and friendly support for Ukraine in extremely difficult – the struggle against the russian aggressor, the struggle for freedom and independence of Ukraine, Europe, and the democratic world community», – Mr. Ihor Prokopchuk – Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Romania.
The Executive General Manager of Elgeka-Ferfelis Romania expressed his support and trust in the project: «The idea of getting involved into such a humanitarian and charity campaign is a perfect fit for us as a company and also for me personally. Our mission on Romanian market is not only to boost the sales and awareness of Vortex products, but also to accomplish a more meaningful role and make people conscious of our common power to help the neighbor-country children when they need us, to be able to act and make a positive impact on a large scale», – Mr. Vasile Marina mentioned.
