KaiserPermanente launches A Relief Campaign in Ukraine
We will match up to $200,000 in employee and physician donations and invites other healthcare organizations to participate.
KaiserPermanente has launched an employee and physician-giving campaign to assist with the urgent Ukrainian refugee crisis for physicians and employees who wish to personally support organizations providing food, shelter, warm clothing, medical care, and supplies to refugees. Employees and physicians can help by donating to one of three organizations chosen by Kaiser Permanente, and the nonprofit integrated health care organization will match individual donations dollar for dollar, up to a total of $200,000.
Employees and physicians donated more than $200,000 in relief funds in less than two days after the programme was announced on March 1, ensuring that the organization will contribute at least $400,000 to Ukraine relief. Donations are still coming in for the three nonprofit relief organizations involved in this matching effort, all of which provide direct aid: Direct Relief, Global Empowerment Mission, and World Central Kitchen. They remained chosen for their track record of success in disaster situations, and all three are currently on the ground in the region assisting refugees.

We ask that you join us in providing donations and showing solidarity for the people of Ukraine. It is a moment and a cause that brings us all together, regardless of our background or ethnicity.
