On June 17, 2013, in the Autocentre “Auto-Kyiv”, an official SEAT dealer in Ukraine, Porsche Finance Group handed over a car, SEAT Altea XL Copa for a two-year use to the Ukrainian Red Cross Society. Josef Graf, Chairman of the Management Board of PFG, thanked the President of Ukrainian Red Cross Society Ivan Usichenko for the good and noble concern of the organization, and solemnly handed the keys of a new vehicle.
Red Cross Society in Ukraine requires constant sponsorship support for the implementation of the various health and social programs that require significant financial resources and mobility. The automobile provided by Porsche Finance Group, will be used by the Society for general administrative purposes in the next two years.
“We are immensely grateful to Porsche Finance Group for their support and the granted car”, says Ivan Usichenko, President of Ukrainian Red Cross Society. “I am sure that the speed and mobility will help us bring to life even greater social projects for the ones in need.”
Supporting the Ukrainian Red Cross Society has become a good tradition for the Porsche Finance Group. Last year the company allocated funds for the needs of Society hospital in Vyzhnytsya town, Chernivtsi region, and provided financial help to St. Elena’s hospice for cancer patients in Korosten, Zhytomyr region.
“We always glad to help those, who really need it”, says Josef Graf, CEO of Porsche Finance Group. “Apart from our company’s contribution, we also appeal to our partners to join us in this immensely good deal, and try to show a deserving example to other corporations, which have an opportunity to provide help.”
Mr. Graf also emphasized that SEAT Altea XL Copa with a diesel engine was chosen for this mission because it has a high efficiency and low emissions. Not only Society representatives will be able to appreciate advantages of the new vehicle, but also all PFG clients, who, in case of purchasing an automobile with financing, will get a bonus — fuel card amounting to 200 liters of diesel fuel* (in the rate of 10 UAH for 1 liter).
Providing help to Ukrainian Red Cross Society is only a part of the charitable mission of Porsche Finance Group in Ukraine. The Company also participated in saving endangered population of Carpathian buffalos and supports social initiatives of Volkswagen, SEAT, Audi and Porsche official dealers.
