We donate for refugees from Ukraine
The number of people fleeing Ukraine is steadily increasing. Children, who make up almost half of the refugees, suffer the most. They come to us in the EU traumatised, defenceless and powerless with their mothers and grandmothers. As a steel construction group with connections in Ukraine and a hands-on mentality, we established contact with families immediately after the outbreak of war in order to help quickly and unbureaucratically. Since the beginning of the war, PEM Buildings, Zeman HDF, Zekon and Zeman Beteiligungsgesellschaft have so far accommodated 36 refugees from Ukraine in Poland, Germany and Austria and are providing for their livelihoods. All of them are young mothers with small children, some with their grandparents. They had to leave their fathers, husbands, sons and friends behind in Ukraine.
We have been helping in silence so far, but now we have to make it public, because according to the local tax law, donations are only deductible if the efforts are made known.
