Humanitarian aid to Ukraine

People all over the world are concerned about the situation in Ukraine. The willingness of our civil society to help is huge. We, on our part, also do not want to leave the people alone in this precarious situation and show solidarity, particularly with our colleagues in Kyiv. Since the beginning of March, we have been arranging refuge for women and children of our Ukrainian employees in Austria and Germany and have been preparing transports of relief supplies for refugees and displaced persons to the Polish-Ukrainian border, from where the redistribution to the interior of the country takes place.

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine. The only thing we want is peace, freedom and democracy for Ukraine!
