(PRESS RELEASE) MUNICH, 27-Dec-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — Siemens AG (ETR: SIE), a German multinational conglomerate and Europe’s largest industrial manufacturing company, has announced that its employees together with the employees of Siemens Healthineers AG will extend their aid campaign in support of Ukraine and will continue to match every euro donated by them to Siemens Caring Hands e.V., a charitable association that was founded at the initiative of Siemens AG 21 years ago in 2001. The war in Ukraine continues to force people to flee the affected areas while low winter temperatures are exacerbating the precarious situation of the people living there. The two companies are determined to provide further help to those affected and through the charitable organization Siemens Caring Hands they have thus far collected more than €12 million in donations since the outbreak of the war. These donations have already helped various organizations to implement more than 60 aid projects ranging from supplying food and medicine to providing clothing and temporary refugee accommodation, and for anyone in need in Ukraine.

“Together with Siemens Healthineers, our colleagues at Siemens have already shown their great commitment and willingness to help. Unfortunately, the war in Ukraine isn’t over yet. As a result, Siemens continues its support to improve the situation, in particular for medical care in hospitals and other critical infrastructure. We’ve launched multiple aid projects to alleviate the hardship and suffering of those who have been so severely impacted by the effects of the war,” said Roland Busch, President and CEO of Siemens AG.

One special focus of Siemens’ aid efforts focus is being placed on supplying people with energy, heating and medical products. Above all, many hospitals in the country’s crisis areas currently lack necessary equipment and medication. To support medical care, Siemens Caring Hands e.V. is working with facilities such as the emergency-care hospital in the Lviv region. As part of this collaboration, the donations are used to improve diagnosis and treatment capabilities. Siemens Caring Hands e.V. is also working intensively on planning and implementing aid projects for hospitals in six other cities – Zaporozhye, Dnipro, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Odessa and Kyiv.

In addition, Siemens Caring Hands e.V. is cooperating with Tabletochki, the largest Ukrainian crowdfunding charity foundation. This foundation advocates interests of children who have cancer in Ukraine and is using the donations to procure pharmaceuticals and medical products.

Stephan Frucht, member of the Board at Siemens Caring Hands e.V., said: “It’s important to provide carefully selected, steadfast support to the people in Ukraine. We know from our crisis work that willingness to help can decline significantly over time. We at Siemens Caring Hands are determined to counteract this. And we’re grateful that Siemens and its dedicated employees are enabling us to continue our support.”
