Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine during this incredibly difficult and distressing time, and we stand united with all of those who have been affected by this humanitarian crisis. As a company, we care deeply about our communities – both the ones in which we operate directly, and also our overall global community. As an employer, we know also that many of our team members have family, friends and others who have been personally affected by these recent events.
WBA is making an initial pledge of more than $1 million in humanitarian aid directly to four organizations leading critical relief efforts in Ukraine and neighboring countries. Our contributions include monetary donations, as well as 1.4 million products such as first aid kits, PPE, baby products, basic toiletries and more. We’re proud to support International Health Partners, American Red Cross, the United Nations Refugee Agency and humedica as part of their ongoing relief efforts, and we’ll continue to look for ways we can further assist.
