Committing up to $5 million for humanitarian relief in Ukraine
JPMorgan Chase continues to monitor the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine to consider how we can best deploy our resources to meet growing and changing needs in the region. The situation has continued to intensify, with more than 2 million refugees fleeing their homes and millions more predicted to be displaced as the conflict unfolds.
To support humanitarian relief efforts, we are increasing our commitment to a total of up to $5 million. This total commitment includes our initial $1 million announced last week, an additional $2 million, and matching our employee contributions. Our commitment will support a number of organizations working to provide emergency food, housing and medical services to those in need including International Medical Corps, International Rescue Committee, Polska Akcja Humanitarna, United States Fund for UNICEF, and World Central Kitchen.
Our thoughts remain with the innocent civilians who are suffering, and those individuals and families in neighboring countries and around the world who have been impacted. We will continue to monitor the situation and stay connected with employees in affected areas.
