The Picnic school for Ukrainian children is featured in the Telegraaf
This is one of the entrepreneurial initiatives we are so proud of. Our co-founder, Picnic, transformed part of their office into a school for 50 Ukrainian children. The children get education from volunteers from Ukraine until they can participate in regular education, and there is a psychologist to support them.
With the People for People strategic partnership, we aim to help LifeLine fill its weekly trucks with demand-driven, relevant humanitarian aid goods. For example, we are shipping 78.000 meals of pasta (10 pallets) in collaboration with Pastaficio and 12 pallets of chocolate thanks to Tony’s Chocolonely. However, we still have another 29 trucks to fill.
LifeLine Ukraine has delivered 1.7 mln € in goods. Since they started 9 weeks ago, Lifeline’s team has ensured 1,500 babies get the care they need every week (e.g., 82.000 portions of baby food, 36.000 diapers, and 54.000 baby wipes). In addition, they enabled 2,300 people to get the food they needed every week (e.g.flour for 56,000 loaves of bread, powder to make 28,000 liters of milk, 4,500 portions of canned vegetables), and 200.000 people were supported in their basic medical needs for 3 months by providing Interagency Emergency Health Kits (IEHK’s).

People for People Foundation donated some Tony’s Chocolonely chocolates to different initiatives
- 8 boxes of chocolate have been given to Movement on The Ground – our partners who are taking care of Ukrainian orphans in Poland
- 13 boxes of choco were donated to “Flee Market.” There were more than 300 Ukrainians who could “shop around” to get anything they wanted for free. A few bicycles, lots of durable/fresh food, hygienic supplies, clothes, and many more. At the exit, every person would receive a packet of Tony’s + Ukrainian flag💛💙
