As the crisis in Ukraine continues, the consequences have been devastating for children and families affected by the war. The need for support is urgent and it is growing daily. Knowing it takes all of us working together to help those who are hurting, Teleperformance, HOPE worldwide and Feed the Children have joined forces to distribute food to several key Ukrainian cities and refugee areas.
The global nonprofit is collaborating with HOPE worldwide and its Global Disaster Response team, as well as its affiliates on the ground in Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Poland and Hungary. A combination of hot meals, food baskets or food vouchers will be delivered to families through the end of July. HOPE worldwide plans to serve residents in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Odesa, Dnipro, and Mykolaiv with a food parcel that will provide relief for up to 10 days. In some locations, bulk food supplies will be purchased locally and then assembled by HOPE worldwide’s Ukraine staff and volunteers to meet the ongoing needs of families in peril.
To further extend the impact of the donation from Teleperformance, additional financial support was given through Feed the Children’s individual donors as well as its corporate partners, AJC Cares, Sushi | Bar ATX, and Americold. By working in concert, these organizations hope to provide relief to nearly 1,700 families.
“In these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to inspire greater hope,'' said Dave Malutinok, president and CEO of HOPE worldwide. “We’ve been working to provide families in Ukraine with food, medicine, and shelter since the crisis began. We’re grateful for the great partnerships with Teleperformance and Feed the Children who are helping to change lives.”
Teleperformance has been a long-time partner of Feed the Children, supporting its various disaster response initiatives through the donations it receives from its employees. Teleperformance then takes these gifts and empowers its employees to select humanitarian projects that they want to fund.
“Citizen of the World (COTW) is a global Teleperformance initiative to support the world’s most vulnerable infants and children, and provide disaster relief in times of emergencies,” said Clementine Gauthier, Global Head of CSR, Teleperformance. “Feed the Children has been a long-time valued partner of Teleperformance, and we are proud to work with them and HOPE worldwide on this critical need.”
For more than 40 years, Feed the Children has mobilized its resources and responded when children needed food. Now, during the crisis in Ukraine, the nonprofit is grateful to its supporters who understand the urgent call to help create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.
“It is only through partnership and the generosity of our donors that we can respond during these critical times and reach families affected by tragedy,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO of Feed the Children. “Through our work with Teleperformance, Americold, AJC Cares, Sushi | Bar ATX and HOPE worldwide, we can support Ukrainians during this difficult time by providing them with food and vital resources.”
