The global community and we at CELUM are deeply saddened by the terrible war in Ukraine. We CELUMians value peace, individual freedom, and respect, and we stand firmly with the people of Ukraine. Both CELUM and its employees have initiated many aid projects – providing financial, moral and organization support.
Charity Rally & Housing
Within a very short time, CELUM organized a charity rally, with CELUMians donating €3.000 and the company adding another €12.000. CELUM also provides the company apartment in Linz to two mothers and their daughters who fled the war zone. In addition, CELUM organizes weekly donations of clothes, sanitary products, medical and other items needed to the St. Barbara’s Church in Vienna, helping individuals and families displaced by the conflict.
CELUMians for Ukraine
Whether it is donations, border pick-ups or hosting refugees, the CELUM team in Austria is dedicated to support all people impacted by the war. This is especially true for one of our colleagues, who organized the relocation of six people from Ukraine to Vienna and accompanied them during every single step of the journey.
Finally, CELUM is providing paid special leave and psychological support to all employees, especially those directly affected by this conflict, and continuously offering job opportunities for Ukrainians.
We know that our initiatives are only a small contribution in the face of all the horror. However, it is important for us that we stand in solidarity with all who have been and continue to be impacted by these events. CELUM believes that mutual respect, humanity and peaceful resolution of conflicts must prevail.
