We are shocked, saddened, and filled with disbelief by Russia’s decision to invade Ukraine.
Since 2015, we have been committed to the recruitment, employment, and growth of individuals in Ukraine. The situation is dear to our hearts, with many friends, family, and team members currently experiencing serious events firsthand. Thankfully, all are currently safe and are watching the situation closely as well as offering support where possible.
While recruitment is the cornerstone of Meeko’s business, our main priority is the safety and wellbeing of our thirty external staff members. Our office in Kyiv will remain open for those who continue to work, despite the unimaginable circumstances, and as a shelter for those still in the area.
Lucidica and Meeko Teams Founder Thomas Jeffs said:
“Over the last seven years, we have only been met with authenticity and peace in Ukraine. The resilience of the Ukrainian people has been a beacon for us all, we can but hope that Russia withdraws its troops from this senseless war that is causing so much suffering.”
Meeko, along with our sister company Lucidica, will be raising money for relief efforts in Ukraine. Half of the donations will go to The British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal and the remaining half will go to local relief efforts decided by our team in Kyiv. Our goal is to help the hundreds of thousands of refugees throughout Ukraine as well as local areas that our team members have seen an impact.
