BASF Donates €1 Million In Emergency Humanitarian Aid To Ukraine-Martin Brudermueller

BASF has provided €1 million in emergency aid to the people of Ukraine following Russian military action in the country. The money went to the German Red Cross, which is working in the crisis region.

“There is a war going on in Ukraine. The suffering for the civilian population in the country is immense,” said Martin Brudermueller, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF. “We want to help these people and therefore quickly decided to provide this emergency aid.”

BASF said the German Red Cross is supporting its sister organisation, the Ukrainian Red Cross, in comprehensive relief efforts. An emergency relief expert from the German Red Cross is on duty in Kyiv to coordinate aid with partner organisations.

Among other things, the German Red Cross plans to provide people in Ukraine and people arriving in neighbouring countries with necessities such as food, clothing and hygiene kits, in addition to communication devices such as charging facilities for mobile phones. The German Red Cross will also provide psychosocial support.

BASF said its employees around the world have also signalled a willingness to donate. In addition to emergency humanitarian aid, BASF will double the amount raised through employee donations.
