Supermarket chain The MarketPlace announced a charity drive for the crisis in Ukraine.

The company said it would ask shoppers to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar for Ukraine, engulfed in war since its neighbour Russia invaded the former Soviet Union territory in February.

Funds raised by shoppers will be delivered directly to the charity Caritas Ukraine in the capital, Kyiv.

MarketPlace said it was co-operating with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hamilton in Bermuda for the charity drive, which runs from today to May 4.

It will cover purchases at any MarketPlace or PriceRite location.

Seth Stutzman, president of The MarketPlace, said: “Like so many others, we have been shocked and disheartened by the news that continues to come out of Ukraine.

“Our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine, as well as everyone in Bermuda who has family there. We are delighted to be able to assist Caritas Ukraine in Kyiv."
