As we continue to follow the tragic developments in Ukraine, our hearts and our thoughts remain with the local people. Their courage and resilience in the face of these terrible circumstances is an inspiration, and their heroic everyday actions remind us of the importance of doing all we can to help. At AmerisourceBergen, we are united in our responsibility to create healthier futures and we are honoured to be able to offer the following philanthropic support.
Across all businesses within AmerisourceBergen, our team members are working with governments, associations and partners across Europe to understand and respond to the needs identified by Ukrainian authorities and humanitarian organisations, such as the World Health Organisation.
The safety and wellbeing of our Word Courier colleagues in Ukraine is a priority and all necessary support is being provided. The company’s Associate Assistance Fund, which gives aid to team members facing financial hardship due to an event outside their control, has provided financial assistance to several team members in the Eastern Europe region that have been directly impacted by the conflict. This support will continue and they remain in our thoughts in the days and weeks ahead.
In alignment with AmerisourceBergen Foundation’s mission a total of $500K to support the humanitarian response in and around Ukraine has been granted. Recipient organizations include the following:
The AmerisourceBergen Foundation is also matching employee donations on a 2:1 basis to Direct Relief, International Committee of the Red Cross, the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund at GlobalGiving and Americares. As of March 18th, team members from 28 countries have donated more than $60K. This will be matched by the Foundation for an additional $120K+, for a total of just under $185k going to support the work being done to address the humanitarian crisis in and around Ukraine.
Partnering with Americares and Direct Relief, AmerisourceBergen has to date provided product donations valued at nearly $200k and this continues to grow. Items such as antibiotics, first aid supplies, glove and general healthcare and hygiene products along with animal health products will support the efforts on-the-ground.
To date Alliance Healthcare has donated approximately $92K in corporate cash donations. Other support from our country businesses include:
