D&D STANDS WITH UKRAINE
We have donated directly to Ukrainian Red Cross @redcrossukraine and have suspended all new and existing business arrangements in Russia. Warm pyjamas, robes, slippers and underwear will leave London this week to go to the Ukrainian border organised by @nidhimakohli for those who have been forced to leave their homes by the war.
We are sharing this in hope of spreading the message of support.
Here are the resources and organisations we looked to who are providing ongoing support on the ground.
