Ride Out In Aid Of The Irish Red Cross Tomorrow
The war in Ukraine has caused immeasurable harm to so many people. As we watch and read the news every day it seems that the crisis that these people are enduring just gets worse and worse. The people at the Irish red Cross have launched a crisis appeal to help these people whos’ lives are being torn apart by violence and insecurity. Displacement, trauma, and separation from loved ones, will have devastating consequences on the people of Ukraine.
A lot of us can be proud to say that we’re doing our part in helping and this Saturday, April 2nd we here at Franklin Motorcycles will be organising a rideout form the store where we will ask you to donate directly to the Red Cross via donate.redcross.ie. We are suggesting a minimum donation of €20 and we’ll be riding out on a pre scouted route at 12 noon.
Red Cross teams are on the ground now in Ukraine and will continue their work to repair vital infrastructure, support health facilities, and help families with life-saving food and hygiene items. This is a rapidly evolving crisis. Your donation will help those affected get food, medicine, shelter and water. Your support will also help the Red Cross to assist those displaced by conflict.
“This new phase of the fighting in Ukraine has sent an ominous chill down my spine. The intensification and spread of the conflict risk a scale of death and destruction that are frightening to contemplate, given the immense military capacities involved.”
—Peter Maurer,President of the International Committee of the Red Cross
