A HOLIDAY homes company has announced it is going to support the worldwide relief efforts in Ukraine by donating £500 a month from their sales of holidays homes for the 2022 season to international aid and humanitarian organisations in Ukraine.

Since the start of the conflict, millions of people have been forced to leave Ukraine to seek refuge in Europe, while many are left seeking shelter underground amid the bombing, often without fresh, clean water or electricity.

It has created a humanitarian crisis, and Harrisons Holidays says it is committed to supporting relief efforts in Ukraine.

Harrison Holidays, established over 40 years ago, is a family-owned and operated company that embraces family values.

Harrison Holidays has holiday homes, cottages, lodges, camping and glamping across seven parks in the north of England, including Northumberland, Cumbria, Southport, Thirsk, Ormskirk, and Preston.

The conflict in Ukraine has caused families to be separated, has left people homeless and forced millions to leave everything they own and love behind as they seek safety in other parts of Ukraine or in other countries.

The conflict is deadly, as the office of the United Nations high commissioner for human rights (OHCHR) verified a total of 3,778 civilian deaths during Russia's military attack on Ukraine as of May 17, 2022, the latest recordings. 

Of them, 251 were children.

Furthermore, 4,186 people were reported to have been injured. However, OHCHR specified that the real numbers could be higher.

George Harrison, one of the founders of Harrison Holidays said of the appeal: “Our thoughts are with anyone affected by this crisis and we hope our actions as a company will help the British Red Cross in providing essential humanitarian support when it is needed most.”
