It is estimated that more than 15,000 Ukrainian refugees, victims of the armed conflict that is shocking the world, have arrived in our country so far. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Millions of displaced people and refugees, most of them women and children, are fleeing the war in search of a safe haven. More than just receiving them, it is necessary to welcome them.
In order to participate in the effort to respond to this urgent need for assistance, the civil society from several countries has joined the many government programmes that are being developed. Portugal is no exception, and Galp is one of the companies that has a package of initiatives underway with the aim of supporting the victims of the conflict. To implement them, Galp has set aside 6.5 million euros that will be divided between several internal actions and will be used in partnership with organizations that are at the forefront of community aid, such as the Red Cross and others.
