Cargolux pledges millions to support Ukraine
Luxembourg, 4 March 2022 – Cargolux will donate a total of EUR 3.5 million to support humanitarian efforts arising from the war in Ukraine. This monetary assistance follows the UN’s emergency appeal for US$1.7 billion to urgently deliver humanitarian support to people in Ukraine and those who have fled the country in search of safety and protection.
Cargolux will donate EUR 1 million each to UNICEF and the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, as well as EUR 500.000 to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). An additional EUR 1 million will also be distributed amongst initiatives by local organizations and communes at Cargolux’ home base in Luxembourg.
“It is with great regret that we witness the unfolding of this conflict. We hope that our donation will positively contribute to the relief efforts underway in Ukraine and at the borders of those countries where people are arriving to seek refuge in the EU.” says Richard Forson, President & CEO of Cargolux.
