„I extend my sincerest condolences to the families of those who died in and suffered from the blast. We are sympathetic with the tragedy of the people in Hitrino and believe it is our duty to help them at a time of hardship. In addition, within the Bulgarian Red Cross’ fundraising campaign in support of the victims we have placed specially signed trolleys in each of our 109 stores to enable our customers to buy and donate food basics”, Boyko Sechanski, Billa Bulgaria CEO, said.
