ACO Fond Ukraine

ACO Fond Ukraine is an endowment fund, in the form of an emergency relief fund, that was established based on the decision of the ACO holding in response to current events in Ukraine. The aim is to give ACO employees the opportunity to financially help colleagues in war-torn Ukraine.

Financial donations will be primarily used for:

  • covering the living costs of ACO staff and their family members who have been forced to flee their homes.
  • providing humanitarian aid to ACO staff and their families who have decided to stay in Ukraine but have very limited access to basic food and hygiene needs.
  • helping to rebuild their homes after the end of the war.

Purposes of the relief fund:

The purpose of the fund is to achieve publicly beneficial goals, especially to help those in need.

The fund achieves this purpose by providing endowment contributions and further implementing its own activities aimed at fulfilling this purpose. The main goals of the fund include providing financial, material, humanitarian, legal, professional or educational support for disadvantaged groups or individuals.

For this purpose, the fund is entitled, among other things, to conduct public collections and charity auctions.

  • We are transparent in our activities and handling of financial donations.
  • All endowment contributions are approved by the holding's representatives, the applicants are informed of the result in all cases.
  • We regularly provide a financial audit, the results of which we always publish in full.
  • Every year we publish a complete annual report with detailed information about our activities and management.
  • We carefully select members of administrative and supervisory functions on the basis of their expertise and undeniable moral credit.
  • We have due respect for our donors.

Dear Friends,

On 29th March 2022 ACO established ACO Fond Ukraine in response to current events in Ukraine and huge willingness of ACO people to help their colleagues in our Ukrainian companies in Kulykiv and Kyiv.

This newsletter is to inform you on a regular basis about the condition of the fond, situation in our companies and donations granted from the fond.
We are pleased to inform you that the total amount of your donations on bank accounts is 32 926 Euro at the moment.

Thank you all who have contributed and those who are considering it. Thanks to your support we can start to help where urgently needed.

The foundation Board and representatives of the ACO holding company in close communication with the managing directors of ACO Kulykiv Igor Savka and ACO Kiev Dmytro Ilyin have decided how to use the first donations.

Now and in the following newsletters we will give you an overview about it. In cause of respecting privacy, please understand that we will not mention any names.

First donations were given to one of our colleagues who lost their son in the war. We supported the family with contribution on decent funeral ceremony. Our human resource department from ACO Kulykiv sent us a very emotional text in response to these donations:

„I would like to tell you about our colleague who has been working for us for 4 years. She is a great worker, very beautiful woman and really good person. She has brought up two wonderful sons who were her only reliable support. When the war broke out, her two sons were mobilized at once. On April 13, we received information that one of her sons had died while performing military tasks on the front lines in combat. There are no words to describe her state and feelings... We all grieve together with our colleague. Now we are trying to help and support her in these difficult times, because we are all one family, ACO family, and we also experience the pain and sorrow of her family. A certain amount was collected by Kulykiv employees to help with funeral expenses. Also, thanks to the ACO Fund, thanks to all ACO employees who are donating funds to the ACO Fund, we were able to pay financial assistance to her. Therefore, I thank each of you for the big support during this difficult time. Now our attention is focused on legally helping our colleague to get back her dearest second son. We are working with lawyers and looking for information that would help bring her second son back home. We all believe and hope that we will succeed.“

From Mariana Kaperyz, HR ACO Kulykiv

The second donation payment was sent to the purchase of power banks: On Tuesday, 3rd of May, several power stations were hit in Lviv. This caused huge blackouts and our colleagues were out of engine for a while! Therefore, our Kulykiv colleagues requested power banks for being able to use power while experiencing another unexpected blackout.

This pictures shows one of the first humanitarian support delivery that has been packed and delivered by our colleagues in ACO Přibyslav to help our colleagues in the Ukraine.

ACO Kulykiv production is running. Sometimes interrupted by sirens, but running. As Mariana Kaperyz, HR Manager says: people do not want to give up on their normal lives, usual habits and this attitude and possibility to work help them stay strong.

Here is the strong message to all of us from Igor Savka, Managing Director of ACO Kulykiv.

Dear colleagues,

We are getting back to you with latest information about our ACO Fund Ukraine.

We are pleased to inform you that the total amount of your donations on bank accounts is 60 128 Euro at the moment.

We would like to thank all ACO colleagues who contributed their donations to the fund or helped in any other way to support our colleagues in Ukraine.

Special thanks to the "ACO Altenclub Rendsburg" - an association of retired ACO colleagues - and ACO Canada for their significant donations.

LATEST DONATIONS:

On request of our management from ACO Kulykiv we funded purchase of baby food and baby nappies to provide them to our ACO families with small children. This request is due to a shortage of those products at local shops at the moment.

Here, you can find pictures from the moment the baby supplies and power banks (from the last donation request of our colleagues) were delivered.

Our colleagues asked for power banks to keep their mobile phones in charge during electricity downs. In May, several power stations were hit in Lviv and this causes regular unexpected blackouts in the city.

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES:

Our ACO companies have started to organize fundraising activities. Our next newsletter will focus on this topic specifically as some countries have had some great ideas. Keep you updated here.

PERSONAL NOTE:

At the end of today’s newsletter, we would like to share a story of one of our colleagues from Kyiv who had to flee from Ukraine to keep her children safe:

I have been with ACO for 15 years. I feel to be a part of a big and friendly ACO family, and my heart belongs to ACO.
24th of February 2022 the War in Ukraine started. As we lived in Kyiv we were in the epicenter of it.
That day I had a call from ACO Pribyslav with words of support, sympathy - ”whatever my family needs, if to be under protection - we can find it in Czech Republic”.

It was really very important to feel support and know that you are not alone in this horribile situation and you can find safe place for your kids.

First week, we stayed in Motherland. Seeing the horrors of War in Ukraine, my family took decision to leave Ukraine and go abroad to be safe with two kids (son 12 years old and daughter 6 years old).

My husband didn’t leave and stayed in Ukraine. It happened on 2nd of March 2022. For some time we stayed in Romania, more than one month in Hungary (thanks to support of ACO Hungary), and from 19th of April we have been in the Czech Republic. My kids went to school and I started working in ACO Pribyslav.
I appreciate that now my kids and me are safe and we feel protection from beloved ACO Family

Dear colleagues,

We are getting back to you with latest information about our ACO Fond Ukraine.

We are pleased to inform you that the total amount of your donations on bank accounts is 66.860Euro at the moment.

Let us thank all ACO colleagues who contributed their donations to the fund or helped in any other way to support our colleagues in Ukraine.

LATEST DONATIONS:

On request of our management from ACO Kulykiv we funded the purchase of headlamps for all employees of ACO Kulykiv and iodide tablets for all family members of our employees.The reason for the headlamps are the continuous alarms and constant danger of power stations black outs. Headlamps will give our colleagues a better feeling of safety during that times.

The iodide tablets are used to prevent the effects of radiation on human health. We were asked to provide them to our employees in ACO Kulykiv and their families who feel unsafe in this respect due to the conflict near the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station.

Here, you can find some impressions of how the requested headlamps and iodide tablets were handed over to our colleagues:

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES:

A lot of ACO companies have started to organize fundraising activities to support our fund. Today, we would like to share some of them with you.

ACO Pribyslav Fundraising |Link to the video

ACO USA Fundraising activities | Interview with Carmen Gillet

What kind of fundraising activities have you initiated at ACO USA?

  1. Pizza, Soda, Popcorn and Sub sandwich sales | We coordinate this to happen on the pay day Fridays once a month.
  2. Baked Goods Sales | Employees donated baked goods and all proceeds went to the fund.
  3. Raffled off Premier parking in Casa Grande | With the heat, people wanted the front spot under the canopy. This was a great incentive to buy tickets.
  4. ACO Peace for Ukraine T-shirt sales | Please see the picture below.
  5. Spare Change competition between Departments | Challenge to each department to see who could collect the most “spare change”.

What kind of activities were the most popular ones?

6. They have all been successful but the Scratchers were the most popular. If the 3 images matched on your card, you could win up to 100 Rendsees (Rendsees are “ACO US money” that can be spend in our own ACO Store)

How much money were you able to raise due to those activities?

7. To date, ACO US employees have donated $8,025.70. Our ACO USA Engagement Team is still working on new ideas to generate more money for the fund and to support our colleagues.

ACO UK Fundraising | Katja Kersten reports on Quiz Night

Thursday 1st September 2022 - the ACO Off-Duty Committee (an employee led committee in ACO Technologies plc in the UK that is made up of employees, who organize events for the employees) entertained 40 ACO employees at this year’s ACO Quiz Night. The evening took place in a local pub and the participants worked hard answering the variety of questions that were presented to them.

The fantastic ACO Quiz Trophy was won by ‘the Grate team’ formed by Building Drainage participants. They will have the pleasure of having this prestigious shiny plastic cup in their offices all year (please see the picture below).

The quiz raised €200 for the ACO Fund Ukraine.
