The Tolk Energy Group and the Swiss non-profit association Swiss Aid to Ukraine have signed a memorandum of cooperation. They agreed on further support for the “Gift light” project to pay off electricity bills. Among those in need of assistance are the families of fallen soldiers, large and low-income families, and the elderly.
“In cooperation with the Tolk Group, the Swiss Aid to Ukraine Association aims to raise awareness of the difficulties of people living in Ukraine this winter and support the most vulnerable families in paying utility bills, purchasing generators and heaters,” said the president of the association, Lana Sobolevska.
The “Gift light” project was launched by the Tolk Group in October 2022. Its main goal is to provide an opportunity to pay the debt for electricity for any Ukrainian families who need this help. In the first weeks, more than 400 people joined the initiative and have already covered electricity bills in the amount of over UAH 130,000.
“This project is our joint contribution to caring for Ukrainians in order to support our compatriots in these difficult times. Now, with the involvement of benefactors of the Swiss Aid to Ukraine Association, our initiative is becoming international. This means that there will be more people willing to join our project, and we will be able to help more people experiencing difficult times,” stressed Volodymyr Krupko, CEO of the Tolk Energy Group.

You can then select the bill and consumer you wish to support by have chosen using the “I want to help” (https://tolk.ua/en/debt-payment/) button and proceed with payment, in just one click.
