Our hearts are with the people who are suffering atrocities in Ukraine, as well as the refugees who have been forced to flee their homes.
The safety of our people and their families continues to be our priority, and we are doing everything we can to support them. This includes helping our team members and their immediate family to leave the country, if they wish.
In addition, we have activated relief funds to provide urgent financial assistance to all Ukraine-based Coca-Cola and CCHBC employees.
We are dedicated to supporting humanitarian relief efforts in the region. To date, The Coca-Cola Company, its global bottling partners and The Coca-Cola Foundation have committed to contributions totalling more than $14.8 million.* This funding will support further relief efforts, our people and the brave efforts of the Red Cross movement operating in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, helping millions of displaced people.
We have been inspired by the actions of our teams and would like to thank those who have donated, volunteered their time and even opened up their homes to support those seeking sanctuary.
Our thoughts are with the millions of people affected by this conflict. Our overriding hope is for peace in the region.

*$9 million in humanitarian relief was committed as part of Global Citizen’s Stand Up For Ukraine rally on April 8. This contribution will go toward increasing food and water supply in Ukraine, providing immediate relief for internally displaced people in Ukraine and supporting refugees in surrounding countries.
