Health technology company Royal Philips and non-profit organization the Philips Foundation are providing support to help address the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and at its borders. The support being provided by Philips and the Philips Foundation includes hospital relief, support for acute and emergency care, financial support, and supplies for displaced Ukrainian citizens, plus a dedicated employee donation program.
“We strongly condemn the war in Ukraine and are deeply concerned and saddened by the devastating impact it is having on the country’s people,” said Frans van Houten, chief executive officer of Royal Philips. “We are working hard to help those impacted by this crisis, including our own colleagues and their families in the country, and supporting local hospitals and other care providers on the ground as best we can. As a health technology company, we will uphold our purpose to improve the health and well-being of people through innovation, at the core of which is a deep respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and democracy.”
