Castrén & Snellman’s holiday donation supports humanitarian work in Ukraine

All of Europe has been shaken up and shocked by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Justice, peace, safety, stability and human rights lie right at the heart of the principle of the rule of law, which we as advocates have undertaken to defend. These are undisputed values that concern all of us, and the events in Ukraine contradict with all of them.

The situation in Europe and in the world is still restless. We will make our traditional holiday donation to Ukraine through our pro bono partner SPR. SPR uses the donations for measures such as sending aid workers and material assistance to Ukraine and for helping refugees that arrive in Finland.

Year-round work with pro bono partners

We are committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, such as the protection of human rights. Our pro bono work supports refugees and immigrants, at-risk children, youths, women, sexual minorities, disabled persons and other minorities that suffer from discrimination.

These principles have guided our choice of pro bono partners: the Finnish Refugee Advice Centre, the Finnish Olympic Committee, the Uusimaa District of the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare, and the Red Cross Youth Shelter.

We wish all of our clients and business partners happy holidays and a successful 2024!
