FC Shakhtar charity matches
We are making great efforts to draw the world's attention to russia's unprovoked and unjustified full-scale military aggression against Ukraine. In April, SkyUp together with Shakhtar Football Club initiated a series of charity matches Shakhtar Global Tour for Peace.
The purpose of friendly matches is not only to raise funds to help Ukraine, but also to tell the whole world about the tragedy of innocent people. The team's footballers went out on the field in T-shirts with the names of cities affected by russian aggression, with the image of the daughter of the defender of Mariupol. A boy who managed to get out of Mariupol and the wife of a serviceman who died in Mariupol and their children went out with the players. In one of the sectors of the stadium, toys were laid out in numbers equal to the number of children killed by the russian occupiers.
In total, FC Shakhtar played four charity matches. In the first three with Olympiacos (Piraeus), Lechia (Gdansk), and Fenerbahce (Istanbul) they managed to raise 10.7 million hryvnias, which will be donated to Ukrainian defenders, medics, and war victims. The final match of the series took place on 1 May with Hajduk (Split).
We continue to look for partners for cooperation. Thanks to the companies with which we are already implementing joint projects, we are able to gradually resume operations. We now involve up to 40% of our team in part-time and full-time work.
We strive to work at full capacity for the sake of Ukraine and our team. We remind you that we are ready to operate evacuation flights and transport humanitarian cargo, provide our aircraft under wet leasing and attract the expertise of our specialists. More on skyup.aero.
