We are deeply disturbed by what's happening in Ukraine. As we continue to closely monitor the situation, FedEx Corp. is committing more than $1.5 million USD in relief aid to provide humanitarian assistance to those impacted by the conflict in Ukraine.
The immediate relief commitment includes a $550,000 cash donation to nonprofit agencies including GlobalGiving Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, World Central Kitchen, The International Rescue Committee, Caritas - Ukraine, Global Medic, and The Polish Red Cross. An additional $1 million has been allocated for in-kind shipping to nonprofit partners working to transport critical supplies. FedEx is working with Direct Relief to provide in-kind support of a charter flight containing urgently needed medical supplies.
This situation impacts many, including our own team members in Ukraine. The safety and security of our team members remains our top priority, and we are providing direct financial assistance to our FedEx team members domiciled in Ukraine.
