Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany – Sign of continued solidarity: Daimler Truck AG continues its support for the people in Ukraine and is donating another one million euros to locally active aid organizations: 700,000 euros will be donated to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and 300,000 euros to the German Red Cross, Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (DRK).

Martin Daum, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG: "For two years, the people in Ukraine have been suffering from the horrible consequences of the war. The need for humanitarian aid remains immense. That is why we want to help improve the situation on-site and ease the burden somewhat with our donation – and send a sign of solidarity and hope for an end to the suffering."

The donation will be used by the partners for different, demand-orientated relief actions. The support of UNICEF is focused on education, medical and psychosocial assistance, as well as the supply of electricity and water to children and families in Ukraine. The German Red Cross is working together with the Ukrainian Red Cross in the areas of emergency aid, disaster control as well as health and social services.

Daimler Truck has supported the people in Ukraine since the beginning of the war

Since the start of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine in February 2022, the company and its employees have provided money and donations in kind, as well as vehicles for aid convoys, with a total value of more than 4.3 million euros. Donations were made to UNICEF, the German Red Cross, and the World Food Programme (WFP) of the United Nations. In addition, Daimler Truck employees have supported the transport of around 3,900 tons of humanitarian aid supplies to Ukraine with more than 200 truck convoys over the last two years. On site, they were used purposefully in cooperation with various partners and aid organizations. Daimler Truck will continue to provide trucks and transport capacities for aid transports in the future.

The company’s central and local aid operations are coordinated by employees who have extensive experience in organizing aid projects and transport services. In addition, they accompany the deployment of the numerous volunteers at many locations, branches, and national companies of Daimler Truck.
