Eni’s people are taking part in a fundraising initiative in collaboration with the Italian Red Cross, so that everyone can make a personal contribution in the humanitarian emergency caused by the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine.
San Donato Milanese, 8 March 2022 - Italy and the world are witnessing the escalation of the humanitarian emergency in Ukraine. In just two weeks, it has forced 2 million people to flee to neighbouring countries or other countries in Europe. As during the pandemic, Eni’s people have decided to make individual contributions, as they see fit, to offer support in the emergency caused by the war in Ukraine.
A fundraising initiative has been launched in collaboration with the Italian Red Cross, which together with numerous associations is tirelessly providing a response to the continuous requests for concrete help from Ukraine. Concrete aid is arriving from Italy, lorries loaded with food, blankets, medicines and camp tents for refugees, while volunteers are working to provide assistance to the most vulnerable groups in the population, including thousands of girls and boys.
The initiative allows every person at Eni, in Italy and abroad through its subsidiaries, to donate an hour or more of their work. The company will double the hours donated and donate them to the Red Cross to tackle the emergency. This small shared gesture aims to express solidarity with the people of Ukraine, so terribly affected by the current conflict.
