“As a company, ONroute wants to help make a difference for those suffering because of this tragic conflict. The cumulative impact of each donation provides the opportunity to ignite change and support the people of Ukraine in their right to freedom and peace,” said CEO Melanie Teed-Murch, in a press release highlighting funds raised over the last two weeks.

Raised funds will be used by the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to offers support such as preparedness, immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and other humanitarian activities in Ukraine and surrounding countries, while also helping displaced populations.
