Karpos supports Ukraine refugees

by

The Italian outdoor clothing brand Karpos has made a donation of 50,000 euros towards the Italian Veneto Region fundraising campaign for refugees from the Ukraine. Published below is their press release.

Wars, wherever they are, bring pain, suffering, and destruction. It doesn’t matter where; the result is always the same.

We at Karpos have decided to provide tangible assistance to civilians forced to flee the conflict. Innocent victims of what is happening around them. Refugees who have no alternative but to leave their homes and their lives to come here.

This war, so close to us, has caused us to reevaluate our priorities in life, in our everyday routines, and in the way we work. For this reason, we’ve decided to contribute the unallocated 2022 funds for the Help the Mountains program, which supports the mountain area, to the Veneto Region’s fundraising campaign for Ukrainian refugees, with a donation of 50,000 euros.

Our beloved mountains, shocked spectators of human madness, will understand, patient as they are, if we turn our attention elsewhere this time.

Those of us who work every day to leave the lightest possible footprint on our beloved land have nothing to do with those who are destroying it. This is why we’ve decided to do our small part.

You can contribute as well, with financial help or by offering your hospitality. Together we can lend a helping hand.
