Parimatch Tech Provides UAH 60m (£1.55m/€1.84m/$2.03m) to Support Ukraine
Parimatch Tech has doubled the amount of financial assistance to Ukraine from UAH 30 million to UAH 60 million — this is approximately €2.9 million. The company has already spent the first UAH 42 million: UAH 39 million on ammunition and 3 million on medicines, clothing, foodstuffs and logistics. The number of people in need is growing day by day, so the next UAH 18 million will also be spent on humanitarian aid and the needs of the country’s defenders: binoculars, body armour, drones, helmets, military spec, thermal imagers, and night vision devices.
Parimatch Tech and Parimatch Ukraine employees are taking part in volunteer activities: purchasing goods and medicine, cooking meals for territorial defence and refugees, delivering food and drugs to people in need, and evacuating residents from the hot spots. Some defend Ukraine in the Armed Forces, territorial defence forces and cyber forces.
The company organised warehouses in Kyiv on the left and right Dnipro river banks that volunteers use to gather, coordinate and deliver humanitarian aid. Also, Parimatch Tech transferred a significant part of the company’s office equipment to territorial defence forces: printers, laptops, monitors, network equipment, modems. Volunteers use the branded Tesla cars of the employees to deliver medicines, food, ammunition and evacuate residents from the Kyiv region.
Chief Talent Officer Tatiana Davydova said that despite the difficult times for the country and the business, Parimatch Tech did not withdraw any offers, and specialists who were terminating cooperation were offered to stay and receive a salary. The company paid in full all compensation to the teams. In addition, each employee can request emergency financial aid.
Furthermore, the territorial defence already received Parimatch’s Tech branded products and onboarding kits: power banks, hoodies, socks, hats, thermoses, and food boxes.
Founded in 2019, the non-profit Parimatch Foundation has suspended projects of sustainable development initiatives to change the focus on helping war victims. Thus, Parimatch Foundation launched a charitable fundraiser to help purchase and deliver food, medicine, and the evacuation of victims.
