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.
To date, The Coca-Cola Company, its global bottling partners and The Coca-Cola Foundation have committed to contributions totalling more than $18.5 million to support our colleagues and humanitarian relief efforts.
When the conflict began, we immediately responded to provide emergency support to NGOs delivering humanitarian relief, including the brave efforts of the Red Cross movement operating in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
In addition, we activated urgent financial assistance to all Ukraine-based Coca-Cola and CCHBC employees.
Our focus now is to support the distribution of vital food and water supplies in Ukraine and relief for internally displaced people and refugees in surrounding countries.
As well as ongoing support for our impacted colleagues, many of whom have left their homes, we will be supporting efforts to rebuild the local community.
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.
