AbbVie Donates $1 Million in Support of Ukraine

Originally published on LinkedIn. AbbVie ranked No. 15 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021.

 

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and those affected across the region. At this time, our priority is to ensure the safety of our colleagues and help patients get the medicines they need.

Given the evolving and urgent nature of this crisis, we have taken a three-pronged philanthropic approach focused on humanitarian, employee and donation support.

AbbVie is donating a total of $1 million to International Medical Corps and Project HOPE for medical care and supplies for Ukraine and Ukranian refugees. We are also donating essential medicines to the Ukranian government and our disaster relief partners.

We are providing relief and additional financial support as needed to Ukranian employees and their immediate families.

We’ve double the AbbVie Foundation’s employee donation match for select disaster relief partners with active humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine and surrounding countries.

As this situation evolves, we will continue working with our nonprofit partners and employees to support relief efforts as we hope for a peaceful resolution.
