Daimler Truck has donated €1,000,000 (NZ$1.6 million) to the United Nations Children’s Fund as part of its efforts to support the people ok Ukraine.

The company is also providing trucks and buses as well as touring coaches for aid deliveries free of charge, as well as donations in kind and personnel support for targeted support campaigns. Currently, employees can donate and the company will match the amount collected at the end.

The matched total from the employee donation campaign will go to UN Refugee Aid, the national partner of the UN Refugee Agency, in order to help the people in Ukraine directly affected by the war as well as those fleeing and displaced due to the war.

“With the joint donation initiative of the company, the General Works Council and the World Employee Committee, we have the chance to make our contribution for the people in Ukraine and at the same time demonstrate the global solidarity of our employees,” said Michael Brecht, chairman of the General Works Council of Daimler Truck AG.
