Statement on humanitarian aid in Ukraine

BioNTechUgur Sahin, CEO and Co-Founder of BioNTech: "We at BioNTech are closely following the tragic situation in Ukraine and our thoughts are with everyone affected. As a company with employees from 60 countries, we know that diversity and community are stronger than pursuing single-sided interests. We join the call of the global community and urge those involved to return to peaceful coexistence in the region for the sake of all people.

"We are supporting humanitarian aid in Ukraine with a donation of one million Euro to the nonprofit organization for refugee relief 'UNO-Fl├╝chtlingshilfe' - the partner of UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Germany. Furthermore, we inform our employees about mental health support and examine further measures to alleviate the humanitarian catastrophe. On behalf of the entire Executive Management Board, I would like to thank our employees who donated already on their own. In these difficult times, this is also a special sign to our colleagues with Ukrainian roots."
