Pfizer’s continued response to the crisis in Ukraine
Pfizer continues to stand in opposition to the Russian war in Ukraine and the devastating situation it has created. Our thoughts remain focused on helping those affected by the terrifying and ongoing conflict.
Since the first invasion of Ukraine, Pfizer and The Pfizer Foundation have helped address both the immediate and long-term needs in the region, through donating millions of Pfizer medicines and vaccines to people in need, providing financial donations to organisations and ensuring the ongoing safety of our colleagues and their families, patients and clinical trial participates in the region.
To date, The Pfizer Foundation has provided almost $40 M in grant funding to 15 NGOs and humanitarian groups providing critical on-the-ground humanitarian aid, including food security and support services, safe shelter, child protection and education, infrastructure repairs, restoration of health facilities, and other essential needs.
The Pfizer Foundation’s commitment to the response efforts is core to Pfizer’s values that define our organization. Going forward, The Pfizer Foundation will donate $1M annually (from 2024) to support organizations working to address critical health needs and rebuilding primary care systems in Ukraine.
We hope for peace. Until then, we remain steadfast in our focus to help those most affected by this war.
