A truck Harsch to the border of Ukraine

posted on April

Harsch opération Ukraine 11

Harsch has set up a project to help Ukraine with the Rotary Club. We have sent a Harsch trailer truck with 2 of our drivers, Nelu and Serguei, respectively from Moldavia and Russia, to bring 90 m3 of basic necessities to the Ukraine.

The project was quickly realized thanks to the network of contacts of the Rotary Clubs and the collaboration of Migros, OneFM and Harsch! All day long on April 1st we were at MParc de La Praille. In the rain and freezing weather for the season, Nelu collected all the basic necessities brought generously by the population who had heard, certainly on ONE FM, the launching of the operation.
