Email from Agrifac




My name is Igor Polishchuk...

Together with my family I live in Chmelnytsky, in Ukraine and I work as a Sales Manager for Agrifac. One month ago I was focusing on the sales process of our self-propelled sprayers, but on the 24th of February, the situation in Ukraine changed drastically. For me, and many others, it became a pitch-black day. Instead of working on a sustainable future for our country’s agricultural sector, I had to bring my family to Warsaw in Poland to secure their safety.

Work has almost come to a complete stop. Instead of helping customers, I have been asked by the government to help my local community. Every day I help more than 100 refugees and local people in need. It is now more than a month since the invasion started and the situation is getting worse by the day.

For me, it is time to ring the bell. This cannot go on any longer. There is an urgent need for supplies such as preserved foods (for children and adults), medicine, sleeping bags, bandages, food, batteries, and more.

I want to help my local community, which I can hopefully do together with your help.
