Bolt donated over €5M to aid organisations that support Ukraine
27 Apr 2022
We stand with Ukraine. Following Russia’s invasion of the country, we committed to donating 5% of every order in Europe to Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) over a two-week period, starting on the 1st of March.
It was a direct donation and had no impact on order prices nor driver and courier earnings. However, every Bolt ride and Bolt Food delivery contributed to the overall amount.
Thanks to our customers, we donated over €5M in total. Besides transferring money, some incredible initiatives have been brought to life by our own big-hearted employees, just wanting to help.
The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) uses the donation to protect the rights of refugees and help build a better future fo those forcefully displaced from Ukraine. Thanks to a larger regional donation, we were able to support their operations within Ukraine and the bordering countries Romania, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova.
There’s a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine right now. Donations help. Voluntary support is needed. Contact your local refugee help organisation and find out what can be done and how you can support them the most.
