A Hamilton hotel raised the Ukranian flag this week and announced that it has donated $5,000 to the Bermuda Red Cross’ Disaster Appeal for Ukraine.

A spokeswoman for the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club said the funds will go to the Ukranian Red Cross Society to help provide humanitarian aid to those on the ground in the war-torn nation.

The spokeswoman added the donation was made in honour of Olha Lytovchenko and Oleksandr Kryvchenko, Ukrainian staff at the hotel.

She said: “The two employees have been vocal in sharing the experiences of their families back home and of their own heartbreak, gathering outside City Hall over the past weekend.”

Tim Morrison, general manager at the hotel, said: “Like so many, we have been shocked and dismayed by the news coming out of Ukraine.

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected and those in Bermuda with family there, along with our colleagues, Olha and Olek, and their families.

“We are pleased to be able to support the Bermuda Red Cross in its humanitarian mission to deliver aid and supplies to the region and we encourage others do so too.’

Ann Spencer-Arscott, executive director of the Bermuda Red Cross, said they were grateful for the donation.

She added: “This is an appalling humanitarian situation which is likely only going to get worse.

“We urge those who want to do their bit, to support the people of Ukraine, to donate now, so that we can support and protect them as best we can.”

Those who would like to donate can do so through direct deposit to the Bermuda Red Cross at Bank of Butterfield account 20 006 060 663859 200.

Donations can also be made online at www.BermudaRedCross.com, over the phone at 236-8253 between 8.30am until 4pm Monday through Friday, or in person at the Red Cross offices on Berry Hill Road.
