Daimler Truck donates one million euros for the people of Ukraine. The sum will be split between the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the German Red Cross e.V., and the World Food Programme (WFP) of the United Nations equally. Last year, the company and its employees had already donated money, goods and vehicles for aid convoys with a total value of over 2.3 million euros. These aid supplies were deployed on the ground together with nine partners and aid organizations. Volunteer drivers have brought more than 200 truck convoys with around 3,700 tons of relief supplies to Ukraine, the company noted in a recent press release.
The internal initiative ‘Humanitarian Aid Ukraine’, which was founded at the beginning of 2022, can now draw on extensive experience in the organization of aid projects and aid transport operations. In this task force, employees from many different departments of the globally acting commercial vehicle manufacturer coordinate the large number of central and local aid campaigns and aid projects in which volunteers from all locations, branches, and national companies of Daimler Truck AG have been engaged for a year now.
